Mizuto Hirota pulled from UFC-Japan after scary weigh-in incident


TOKYO – Perhaps in a not-so-stunning move, the UFC has pulled Mizuto Hirota from Friday’s UFC Fight Night 117.

Hirota missed weight by 5 pounds for his featherweight bout with Charles Rosa and was visibly in bad shape. After weighing in, Hirota had to be helped off the scale.

Below is the UFC’s full statement:

“Due to health and safety concerns, the UFC featherweight bout Hirota vs. Rosa at UFC Fight Night Japan: Saint Preux vs. Okami has been cancelled, as Hirota was deemed unfit to compete by the UFC medical team.

UFC Fight Night Japan: Saint Preux vs. Okami will proceed as scheduled with 10 bouts at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Moving to the main card will be the flyweight bout between Jussier Formiga and Ulka Sasaki.”
