UFC’s official statement.
Due to weight management issues, the flyweight bout between Ryan Benoit and Zarrukh Adashev has been cancelled.
According to ESPN, “Benoit was then taken backstage at the UFC Apex to be looked at by a doctor. About five minutes later, Benoit returned and was helped onto the scale by Crowder and UFC security. Still wobbly, Benoit was able to stay still on the scale long enough for Mullen to register the weight at 129 pounds.”
