The UFC 216 main card took a pretty big hit today. One of WMMA's biggest stars, Paige VanZant was pulled from her bout against Jessica Eye.
UFC.com reports that “12 Guage” has suffered an undisclosed injury which has lead to her being removed from the event. Fortunately, their are two title fights headlining the event, so it will not hurt as bad as it would on some of the less stacked fight cards.
This was an unfortunate turn of events for Paige and Jessica, as their fight was set to take place in the newly minted women's Flyweight division. A win for either would have put them into prime position in the top ten of the new division. It is unknown at the moment if the company is looking for a replacement to take on Eye.
