Michael Graves was set for action against Sergio Moraes at UFC Fight Night 100, but that's no longer the case after the UFC veteran was arrested by Atlanta police for a misdemeanor battery charge.
The UFC is aware of the situation and they have issued a statement on the situation.
"The UFC organization is aware that Michael Graves was arrested over the weekend on a misdemeanor battery charge," a UFC statement read. "The organization takes this situation seriously and is in the process of gathering more information. Graves has been removed from his scheduled bout on Nov. 19 as a result of the pending legal matter."
With nearly five weeks until the fight, the UFC is expected to announce a replacement to fight Moraes at UFC Fight Night 100.
Graves is currently undefeated as a professional MMA fighter, defeating Vincente Luque and Randall Brown, while fighting Bojan Velickovic to a draw at UFC 201. His future in MMA is unclear.
Moraes has won four of five heading into his UFC Fight Night 100 appearance, those wins have come over Renee Forte, Neil Magny, Mickael Lebout and Omari Akhmedov.
Graves has yet to issue a statement of any kind on the matter, neither have the Atlanta, Georgia Police Department issued a statement on the matter.
