Tonight’s scheduled strawweight fight between Jessica Aguilar and Jodie Equibel at the UFC Fight Night 131 event has been cancelled, the news was first reported by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.
The New York State Athletic Comission pulled the fight just hours before showtime due to a concern over a medical issue with Aguilar. The issue with the former ATT’s Aguilar came up on Thursday. Sources say that Aguilar was asked to get clearance by the doctors, which she did. The NYSAC confirmed that Aguilar had been given clearance, but yet on Friday decided to remove the 115-pound contest from the event.
UFC Fight Night 131 takes place tonight (Friday June 1) from the Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, New York, United States.
