Gokhan Saki has apparently suffered an injury and has been pulled from UFC Fight Night London, where he was supposed to battle Saparbek Safarov.
It was Safarov who revealed the news via Instagram:
Here is a translation of what Safarov wrote, provided by Google Translate:
“The sad news! My rival Gokhan Saki was injured! Looking for a replacement. A speedy recovery @gokhansaki"
UFC officials are seeking a replacement opponent, as Safarov is expected to remain on the card at this time.
Safarov (8-2-0) is currently winless in UFC competition, dropping bouts to the duo of Gian Villante and Tyson Pedro. Safarov won a total of eight fights outside of the UFC, which includes a victory over UFC veteran Rodney Wallace at WFCA 17. Safarov has competed ten times as a professional MMA fighter and none of his bouts have gone the distance.
UFC Fight Night London takes place on Saturday, March 16 from the 02 Arena in London, England with Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal headlining. Fightful is going to be providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
