Brooks (18-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) and Lentz (27-8-2 MMA, 11-5-1 UFC), lightweights who were scheduled to compete in one of the featured preliminary-card bouts at Saturday’s UFC 216 event, have been scratched from the card.
UFC officials today announced the cancellation, citing “medical issues” for Lentz. CombatPress.com first reported the scrapped bout.
UFC 216 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and UFC Fight Pass.
Taking Lentz and Brooks’ slot on the FX prelims is a flyweight fight between Marco Beltran (8-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Matt Schnell (9-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC), which was slated to kick off the event. The fight was originally slated to stream on UFC Fight Pass.
Lentz had been competed at featherweight up until two bouts ago, when he moved back up to lightweight. He was on a 3-1 run before a recent decision loss to Islam Makhachev at UFC 208.
Brooks, meanwhile, is a former Bellator champ who was hoping to get back in the win column following back-to-back UFC losses to Alex Oliveira and Charles Oliveira.view original article >>
