"Heartbroken is the only way to describe it. After a great camp and an easy weight cut, I, unfortunately, woke up this morning at 4 a.m. vomiting and my condition has yet to improve," Robertson wrote on her Instagram Story. "So for the first time in my career, my team has decided it would be best to pull me from this fight."

"My greatest apologies to Miranda, I know how much you put into this and it would be an honor to share the Octagon with you in the future," she continued. "I'm sorry to everyone I'm letting down, my team, my fans and the UFC. I wish I could have performed for you tonight."

UFC 258 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, February 13. The pay-per-view card is headlined by a UFC welterweight title fight between champion Kamaru Usman and top contender Gilbert Burns. Keep up with Fightful.com for all your pre-fight, live, and post-fight coverage.
