On Wednesday the promotion formally announced a cancellation of the bout. It is expected to “be rebooked at a later date”, stated in the announcement.
According to the revised fight card, the lightweight bout between Scott Holtzman and Alan Patrick was moved to the preliminary card. The early prelims card now consists of three bouts.
