UFC Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting

UFC London has suffered a last-minute cancelation.

Officials announced that a lightweight bout between Nasrat Haqparast and Nad Narimani has been removed from Saturday’s card less than an hour before showtime due to Haqparast having an infectious eye condition, thus rendering him medically unfit to compete.

The cancelation was first reported by Nolan King.

Narimani was stepping in on just five days’ notice for an injured Alex Reyes.
