Paige VanZant withdraws from UFC 216 with undisclosed injury

Jessica Eye made a simple - yet telling - post on Twitter Monday morning that was eventually confirmed.

Long-time UFC strawweight contender Paige VanZant was expected to make the jump up to the new UFC women's flyweight division at UFC 216 this October 7. According to the MMAFighting report, the culprit in VanZant's pullout is a back injury she sustained while training Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

The flyweight fighters were meant to scrap next week in Las Vegas, NV alongside Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee who will be fighting for the interim lightweight title fight as its reigning champion, Conor McGregor is taking a break following his fight with Floyd Mayweather. The card will also be highlighted by a heavyweight showdown between former champ Fabricio Werdum and the brick-fisted Derrick Lewis. Ray Borg which will be a flyweight title fight that could potentially set a record for the most UFC title defenses. A replacement opponent will not be sought for Eye. Eye (11-6-1, 1-5-1 in UFC) has been out of action even longer, having not fought since a split-decision loss to Bethe Correia at UFC 203 in September 2016.
