Andrew Craig vs. Chris Camozzi removed from UFC Fight Night 39 line up due to illness

USA TODAY Sports

Both fighters will be paid their "show" money.

And then there were eight.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been forced to scrap the middleweight contest between Andrew Craig and Chris Camozzi at UFC Fight Night 39, after "Highlight" was felled by tonsillitis, according to Fighters Only.

"Very sad to say my fight with Andrew Craig has been called off due to Craig being sick," Camozzi wrote earlier today on Twitter. "Hopefully he recovers quickly."

The promotion has not yet revealed if Craig and Camozzi will hook 'em up at a later date.

The loss of their 185-pound bangfest brings the current "Nogueira vs. Nelson" fight card, scheduled for the Fight Pass network on April 11, 2014 in Abu Dhabi, down to just eight bouts. See the entire UFC Fight Night 39 line up right here.
