A new report claims that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) may have ultimately lost tomorrow night’s co-main event due to difficulties at a fighter’s hotel.
The world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion will be in Belem, Brazil on Saturday, Feb. 3, for UFC Fight Night 125. The exciting card is set to see former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida go toe-to-toe with Eryk Anders in the night’s main event. That being said, the fight card has since lost the co-headliner for the evening.
John Dodson was initially set to face off against Pedro Munhoz in the night’s co-main event. However, Munhoz missed weight by a staggering total of four pounds. Consequently, Dodson has since declined to fight an overweight opponent. The night’s co-headliner has been cancelled.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto has now taken to Twitter to report that Munhoz’s hotel allegedly ran out of hot water leading up to the official weigh-ins for UFC Fight Nigh 125. As a result, Munhoz was unable to effectively cut his weight.
