According to Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer, Varner was vomiting in the back as he prepared for his scheduled bout against Melvin Guillard, and due to the sickness he will be unable to fight.
Varner made weight without incident on Friday, but apparently came down with a bug overnight and was sick on Saturday.
Unfortunately the illness was bad enough to cause Varner to be pulled from tonight’s card and his fight with Melvin Guillard had to be cancelled.
UFC officials confirmed that Guillard and Varner will be paid their show money for the fight.
