The forthcoming UFC 247 card is going to be moving on with one less bout because a light heavyweight division encounter between Ovince St. Preux and Ryan Spann has been pulled from the event.
MMA Junkie first reported the news, but an exact reason as to why the bout was canceled isn’t known at this time.
Spann would take to Instagram and Twitter to comment on the situation surrounding his now canceled bout:
No reason was given to me nor is it my business to put out someone else's business. That msg was solely for my people in Beaumont/Houston and surrounding areas that was going to put out to get tickets to see me fight live again. Wasn't done on my side-- https://t.co/JnxRbs8g5U— Ryan Spann (@Superman_Spann) December 10, 2019
UFC 247 takes place on Saturday, February 8 from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas with Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
