… and just like that, Northcutt-Makdessi has been scrapped from UFC 214
We’ve been so caught up with May/Mac that MMA news is going unnoticed. Well, news just broke that Sage Northcutt vs John Makdessi is now off of UFC 214. It looks as if both fighters are dealing with injuries and no new date has even been set. According to UFC.com,
“Due to injuries suffered by both fighters, the lightweight bout between Sage Northcutt and John Makdessi has been pulled from the UFC 214 event on July 29.
The bout will not be replaced and the card will proceed with 12 bouts.
In the UFC 214 main event, which airs live on Pay-Per-View from Honda Center in Anaheim, it’s the long-awaited rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former titleholder Jon Jones. Plus, Tyron Woodley defends his welterweight crown against Demian Maia, and a new women’s featherweight champion will be crowned when Cris “Cyborg” battles Tonya Evinger.”
