Due to illness Amanda Nunes pulled out of her fight with Valentina Shevchenko.
Yoel Romero vs Robert Whittaker is now the main event.
Nunes felt really sick yesterday, tried to fight it and got worse and went to hospital
this morning, around 9 to 930 it was all but done.
Nunes is out and Joanna is begging us to let her fight Valentina, Joanna you’re
such an amazing badass, incredible fighter and is an honour to have you in the UFC.
Per NAC executive director Bob Bennett, it would be too late at this point to replace
Nunes with anyone.
Tonya Evinger and Lauren Murphy also offered to fight.
Dana White said the doctor cleared Amanda to fight, she said she doesn’t feel good,
it is what it is, you can’t make anyone fight.
Good to see Dana burying his champ by saying the doctor cleared her to fight,
but she still didn’t want to. Good promoting.
And Frank Mir has been granted the release that he wanted from the UFC.
