It would appear that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is currently short a co-main event, as Uriah Hall has been pulled from the night’s card. New reports are now claiming that Hall has been transported to the hospital following his potentially debilitating weight cut.
UFC Fight Night 124 lost two match ups today, as neither Uriah Hall nor Zak Cummings made it to the scales at the weigh-ins. The result of Hall’s weight cut has yet to be revealed, as the fighter’s condition is currently unknown.
Shortly after Hall did not make it to the scales, UFC warrior Paige VanZant took to social media to warn fight fans that things were not looking well for Hall. Over Twitter, “12 Gauge” stated:
“Please send Prayers up for @UriahHallMMA scariest thing I have ever seen.”
Please send Prayers up for @UriahHallMMA scariest thing I have ever seen. 🙏🏼

MMAimports has now confirmed that Uriah Hall has been transported to a local St.Louis hospital. The fighter’s condition is still unknown, though it seems plausible that Hall’s weight cut is a debilitating factor on the fighter’s health following a no show at the weigh-ins.
Uriah Hall was initially set to face off against MMA legend Vitor Belfort in the night’s co-main event. UFC Fight Night 124 goes down Sunday night, Jan. 14, inside the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
