Outside of the two competitors missing weight, one fight was canceled as Magomed Bibulatov was pulled from a fight against Ulka Saska after the state athletic commission deemed him medically unfit to fight due to an alleged back injury.

Sasaki did issue a statement on the matter through Instagram:



‪今回の試合ですが、相手選手のメディカルの問題があり試合中止となりました。‬ ‪この試合を楽しみにしていてくれた全ての方々に申し訳ない気持ちでいっぱいです。‬ ‪しっかりと気持ちを切り替えて、次戦に向けて動きます。‬ ‪今後とも、応援程宜しくお願い致します!‬ My tomorrow’s fight got cancelled because my opponent was declared as “medically unfit” to fight by the athletic commission. I feel bad for the fans that are looking forward to see my fight. I am going to switch my mode and will concentrate on my next fight. So please keep on supporting me! #UFC #nyc #flyweight #april #21
