Evloev posted the following on Instagram about the matter:



Как вы все уже знаете, мой соперник травмировался и бой был отменён, так как у организации не было возможности найти мне оппонента в такой короткий срок. Я упорно тренировался и провёл два хороших тренировочных лагеря а также согнал вес. Но мой новый соперник не был допущен на турнир из-за травмы. Но мы не отчаиваемся и идём дальше. Это часть игры! Я планирую подраться на одном из ближайших турниров, не важно с кем и когда! As you all might know my opponent got and the fight was cancelled, as they weren’t able to find a replacement in one day. I worked hard, i trained in several good training camps and cut weight. But once again my opponent wasn’t able to fight injured. But we do not despair, and move on. It’s part of the game. I plan to fight in the next tournament, no matter against whom and where. #ufc #shenzhen #mma #ruby #evloev #ingushetia
