The latest live pay-per-view event from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is now just hours away. That being said, the highly anticipated fight card will now have to do without one of the night’s match ups.
UFC 230 is set to take place this Saturday, Nov. 3, from within the illustrious Madison Square Garden in New York. Live on pay-per-view, two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier will headline the night’s card in a heavyweight title fight against talented knockout artist Derrick Lewis.
Also originally featured to compete on the night’s card, bantamweights Brian Kelleher and Montel Jackson were initially set to kick off the night’s event on the promotion’s UFC Fight Pass streaming service. However, as reported by ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, the fight has been cancelled on just hours notice.
Kelleher missed weight by a pound for the match up. However, the fighter is now reportedly suffering from an unrelated sickness. Consequently, the upcoming bout will no longer be taking place.
