The middleweight bout between Karl Roberson vs. Marvin Vettori for Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night has been canceled after Roberson was forced to withdraw due to complications from a failed weight cut, sources told ESPN.
Roberson missed weight by 1 1/2 pounds Tuesday. Later in the evening, he fell ill and was transported to a local hospital, sources told ESPN, and he was discharged Wednesday morning but was deemed not medically fit to fight.
Both Roberson and Vettori have two-fight winning streaks.
The fight card takes place at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. It will be televised by ESPN+. The main card begins at 9 p.m. ET, the prelims at 6 p.m.
