First reported by Ariel Hewlani of ESPN, the UFC 243 main card has lost an exciting fight.
An undisclosed injury has forced Holly Holm to withdraw from her Oct. 5 bantamweight bout versus Raquel Pennington in Australia. The match would have served as a rematch from the pairs first meeting in 2015, where Holly Holm emerged victorious by split-decision.
Holm was last seen at UFC 239, falling short against Amanda Nunes in a bid to recapture the bantamweight championship.
Pennington made her way back into the win column by defeating Irene Aldana via split-decision after dropping back-to-back fights versus champion Amanda Nunes and number one contender Germaine de Randamie.
MMA Junkie reported that the promotion will not be booking a short-notice replacement.
We wish Holly Holm a speedy recovery!
