A middleweight fight has been scrapped from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 107.

Tom Breese was scheduled to make his middleweight debut on the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night 107 in London, England against Oluwale Bamgbose — up until the event started on Saturday afternoon.

UFC commentators John Gooden and Dan Hardy opened up the UFC Fight Pass broadcast by announcing that Breese was declared “medically unfit to fight” and that his fight with Bamgbose has been scrapped.

No other details were provided.

This, of course, is the second bout from the card to be scrapped after weigh-ins. Ian Entwistle vs. Brett Johns was removed from the card early Saturday morning after Entwistle made a trip to the hospital due to an illness.

Breese (10-1) is coming off the first professional loss of his career, a split decision to Sean Strickland at UFC 199 last summer. The loss to Strickland snapped a three-fight winning streak in the UFC, which included a decision over Keita Nakamura and a devastating finish of Cathal Pendred.

Bamgbose (6-2) is 1-2 in the Octagon. He made his debut in August 2015 on short notice against ranked middleweight Uriah Hall. Since then, he has knocked out Daniel Sarafian and dropped a decision loss to Cezar Ferreira.

UFC Fight Night 107 is currently live from The O2 Arena in London, England on UFC Fight Pass. In the main event of the evening, light heavyweight contenders Jimi Manuwa and Corey Anderson look to launch themselves into the title mix at 205 pounds.
