Another UFC event has officially bitten the dust as UFC Fight Night Dublin, which was scheduled for August 15, has been canceled.
The UFC made the announcement through Twitter:

Former UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker and Darren Till were reportedly going to headline the card, but they will now headline the Fight Night event scheduled for July 25. No other fights, including the reported main event, were made official before the event's cancellation.
There is no word yet on when the UFC will return to the country of Ireland, but the promotion did say they plan on returning there in the “near future.”
