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.

Newcastle's Yedlin said after the match, via the Mirror . "First of all we need to win at home, of course". Bundesliga: Bayer Leverkusen 3 (Volland 20, 83, Alario 23) bt Hamburg 0.

Eye has seen a string of bad luck in her recent attempts to fight again in the UFC, with her bout against Invicta FC veteran Aspen Ladd canceled the day before UFC 213.

There is no word on if and when the fight may be rescheduled.
