NEW YORK – UFC 208 suffered a loss during Friday’s official weigh-ins.
Heavyweight Justin Willis was deemed “unfit” to compete by the UFC, and his fight with Marcin Tybura was scrapped from the card. The bout was to take place during the Fight Pass portion of the prelims.
Tybura weighed in earlier in the morning at 245.4. No additional information was provided as to the reason Willis was removed from the card.
Per a UFC official, Tybura will receive his show money for the fight.
Willis posted the following statement to Facebook.
Hey everyone, I want you to hear from me first, I did everything I could to make weight for the fight this weekend but due to the short notice my body shut down during the weight cut and the UFC doctors wouldn’t clear me to fight. I will be back in the UFC with a full camp very soon. Thank you to everyone at the UFC, all of their staff have been great. I want the same opponent or anybody else will suffice. I will be ready. God Bless.
