UFC Vegas 21 has lost its lone heavyweight bout.
According to sources, an injury caused the fight to be delayed but the matchup is expected to be rescheduled for a later date.
Both fighters were looking to rebound from recent losses. Rothwell (38-13) saw a two-fight win streak snapped in October when he dropped a unanimous decision to Marcin Tybura. On the other side, 2018 PFL champion Lins (14-5) seeks his first UFC victory. The Brazilian joined the promotion last year and lost both of his 2020 fights against Tanner Boser and Andrei Arlovski.
UFC Vegas 21 proceeds with 12 scheduled bouts. See the updated lineup below (bout order to be determined):
