Andrew Sanchez vs Marvin Vettori pulled from UFC Vancouver due to ‘health issues’

In what is becoming a weekly ritual, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has once again been forced to shuffle its “Fight Night” line up, thanks to the loss of Andrew Sanchez vs. Marvin Vettori at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 158 event on ESPN+, scheduled for Sat., Sept. 14, 2019 inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Sanchez (11-4) was originally expected to throw hands with middleweight veteran David Branch; however, that bout fell apart last month and Branch was replaced by Martin Vettori (13-4-1). Now it seems “El Dirte” is the one who will be unable to continue after succumbing to “health issues,” according to

The bout is expected to be rebooked for an upcoming fight card in the very near future. Sanchez is looking to secure his third straight win and sneak into the division Top 10, while Vettori will aim to build on last July’s decision win over Cezar Ferreira.
