Late injury shakes up UFC Atlantic City fight card

MMA: UFC 216-Moraga vs Magomed Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight Magomed Bibulatov has re-aggravated a back injury and will no longer be competing at UFC Fight Night 128 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1 this Saturday (April 21, 2018), held inside Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

That explains his no-show at the weigh ins, according to Ariel Helwani.

I know you’re all devastated by the news, but I urge you to dig deep and find the resolve to soldier on in spite of our collective disappointment. The real victim here is Ulka Sasaki, who is unlikely to find a new opponent the day before the event.

The new bout order is expected shortly.
