MMA Junkie first reported the news. Zawada is expected to remain on the card at this time, as UFC officials are seeking a replacement opponent for him to fight.
Zawada (17-5-0) has won just one of three in the UFC with that lone win coming over Abubakar Nurmagomedov at UFC Fight Night Moscow. Zawada is back in action for the first time in just about a year, as his last fight happened in November of 2019. Zawada has competed 22 times as a professional MMA fighter and just four of those bouts went the distance.
UFC Fight Island 6 is set for Saturday, October 17 from Fight Island in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi with Brian Ortega and Chan Sung Jung headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
