With less that two days to go before UFC Fight Night St. Louis, an injury has forced a few changes to the card.
Zak Cummings suffered an injury after the fighter cracked his head against a handrail while moving from a tub while cutting weight, which has caused the cancellation of a bout against Thiago Alves.
Due to the face that there is less than two days before the event, UFC officials had no time to find a replacement opponent for Alves.
Cummings confirmed the injury himself when responding to an angry fan via Twitter:
I’m absolutely fucking devastated right now. This one of the best cuts I’ve ever had and slipped while moving from the tub to the ground and cracked my fucking skull on a handrail. I’ve missed most of my 3 months olds entire life! You disgust me— Zak Cummings (@ZakCummings) January 13, 2018
A women’s bantamweight division bout between Irene Aldana and Talita Bernardo has been moved from the UFC Fight Pass portion of the preliminary card to the Fox Sports 1 portion of the preliminary card.
UFC Fight Night St. Louis takes place on Sunday, January 14 from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri with Dooho Choi and Jeremy Stephens headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
