Just hours after the UFC Fight Night 37 weigh-ins, the Davey Grant vs. Roland Delorme fight has been canceled.

According to UFC president Dana White, Grant recently suffered a knee injury. Following an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, the UFC determined Grant was too injured to fight. White, who said Grant fought to remain on the card despite the injury, will pay both fighters their show money.

Both bantamweight fighters successfully made weight Friday in London.

England's Grant (8-2) was searching for his first official UFC win after losing the TUF 18 finale to Chris Holdsworth in November.

Delorme (9-2) is coming off a split decision loss to Alex Caceres in September at UFC 165.

UFC Fight Night 37, which airs Saturday afternoon on UFC Fight Pass, will now proceed with nine fights.

Update: The Daily Telegraph is reporting Grant tore his meniscus three days ago.
