However, a report from MMA Fighting is stating that seven fighters have possibly been pulled from the event due to visa issues.

Those fighters are Duda Santana, Luana Carolina, Diego Henrique Da Silva, Fabio Aguiar, Joao Zaiden, Rodrigo Nascimento and Daniel Pereira. Those visa issues also lead to two fights being completely canned, as those bouts would’ve seen Santana face Carolina and Da Silva face Aguiar.

There has been now word given at this time as to whom the UFC will find to replace the seven fighters no longer competing on those cards.

MMA Fighting is also reporting that more fighters could be facing visa issues and getting pulled from the event, although an exact number of competitors hasn’t been named.

The cards are expected to be taped during the second week of August, although all these visa issues could lead to that changing as well.
