Oliveira Ill, Pulled from Lentz Bout

Tonight's featherweight rematch between Charles Oliveira and Nik Lentz has been scrapped from the UFC Fight Night event after Oliveira was not cleared by doctors to compete.

 

 Oliveira, who was getting over a viral infection he contracted in Brazil, had a relapse earlier this week and missed weight for the bout Thursday, coming in at 150 pounds. He did not attempt to weigh in again. This morning, the Brazilian fell ill, and after being seen by a doctor he was pulled from the bout.

 

The UFC Fight Night event at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Connecticut will proceed as scheduled with nine bouts.
