ST. LOUIS – Here we go again.
The co-main event of the UFC’s first event of 2018 has been scrapped the day before the card. Middleweight Uriah Hall (13-8 MMA, 6-6 UFC) did not weigh in today for his co-feature with Vitor Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC).
UFC broadcaster Brendan Fitzgerald announced after the close of the official weigh-ins’ two-hour window that Hall could not step on the scale, and the fight with Belfort was off. The meeting was set to be Belfort’s retirement fight, and it remains to be seen if he’ll stay active to fight one more time before hanging up the gloves, or if he’ll stick to his timeframe and call it quits now, just without the final fight he was expecting.
UFC Fight Night 124 takes place Sunday at Scottrade Center in St. Louis and is the promotion’s first trip to the city. The card airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
