Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has flat-out canceled its upcoming welterweight fight between Pascal Krauss vs. Adam Khaliev, which was originally scheduled to take place on the UFC on FOX 10 prelims later this month (Jan. 25, 2014) at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
No reason for the change was given; however, a new bout is expected to take its place in the coming days.
Krauss (11-2) is an even 2-2 under the ZUFFA umbrella following his 2010 debut, while Khaliev (6-0), was making his Octagon debut on the strength of six straight wins on the international circuit.
Maybe next time.
UFC on FOX 10 will feature a lightweight showdown between former division champion Ben Henderson and ex-Strikeforce 155-pound kingpin Josh Thomson. The winner is expected to be very close to a shot at current titleholder Anthony Pettis.
That's not all.
"Henderson vs. Thomson" will also feature a heavyweight mash-up between Gabriel Gonzaga and Stipe Miocic, while Donald Cerrone looks to make it two in a row against the dangerous stylings of fellow lightweight Adriano Martins.
