It was recently reported that a fight between Ketlen Vieira and former UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Germaine De Randamie may be added to UFC Fight Night Belem.
However, the fight is no longer in the works because De Randamie apparently suffered another injury to her often injured hand.
It was Vieira who broke the news through a post on Instagram:
Galera venho aqui comunicar a vocês que essa luta foi cancelada , pois a minha adversária está com a mão machucada pra lutar ,o mas estranho que até dois dias atrás a mão dela estava em feitas condições , postou até vídeo treinado ,mas enfim Deus sabe de tudo e eu confio nos planos dele,por que os planos dele são melhores que os meus . Obrigada galera pela força , e eu continuo no foco treinando e aguardado .
Here is a translation of what Vieira posted, provided by Google Translate:
“Galera, I came to tell you that this fight was canceled, because my opponent has his hand injured to fight, but strange that until two days ago her hand was in good condition, he even posted a trained video, but God knows everything and I trust his plans, because his plans are better than mine. Thank you guys for the strength, and I continue in focus training and awaited.”
There is no word right now as to whether or not Vieira will remain on the card against a yet to be named opponent.
