UFC officials confirmed to MMA Fighting on Wednesday that the bout would be pulled from the card. Sources close to the situation confirmed that Sanchez fell ill earlier this week and would be unable to compete on Saturday night. TSN initially reported the news.
As of now, it’s expected that Sanchez and Vettori will be booked for a future card, but there’s no word on when that might happen.
As for Vettori, he had just returned to action in July where he picked up a unanimous decision win over Cezar Ferreira.
