Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was forced to cancel a featherweight contest just a few days ahead of this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 105: “Lewis vs. Browne” mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, locked and loaded for this Sunday night (Feb. 19, 2017) inside Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Due to an injury suffered by Michel Quinones, his bout with Alexander Volkanovski has been pulled from Sunday’s UFC Fight Night card at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax. The FS1-televised event, which is headlined by the heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne, will proceed as scheduled with 11 bouts.
And no tears were shed.
Quinones (8-1) was making his UFC debut after ripping through the regional circuit. Volkanovski (14-1), meanwhile, made his Octagon debut last November by thrashing Yusuke Kasuya.
Expect them to be rebooked for a later date.
