The MMA Gods have struck there mighty hammer down on us yet again. UFC 235 early preliminary bout between Bantamweights Marlon Vera and Frankie Saenz has been called off due to Saenz falling Ill.
“Due to illness, Marlon Vera has been removed from his UFC 235 bout against Frankie Saenz. The UFC 235 card, which airs live on Pay-Per-View and is headlined by the light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Anthony Smith, will proceed as scheduled with 12 bouts.” UFC officials wrote on there website, this will come as an upset for Vera who was looking to keep his momentum flowing, as he looked to continue his win and finishing streak of 2.
There is currently no word on if the fight will be rescheduled and it seems highly unlikely for a last minute replacement. The Ultimate Fighter Latin contestant will likely be looking to compete and be back in the cage as soon as possible.
