The flyweight division debuts for Paige VanZant and Jessica Eye has been pulled from next month’s UFC 216 card.
VanZant is the culprit behind the fights potential cancelation because she has suffered an injury. The nature of that injury has yet to be revelaed.
The UFC posted an update about the situation Monday afternoon.
Due to injury, Paige VanZant has been forced to withdraw from her UFC 216 bout against Jessica Eye on Oct. 8.
Eye has seen a string of bad luck in her recent attempts to fight again in the UFC, with her bout against Invicta FC veteran Aspen Ladd canceled the day before UFC 213.
This would have been the second women’s flyweight bout in UFC history.
UFC 216 takes place on Saturday, October 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
