The UFC 211 fight card already lost one fight earlier this week, but on the morning of the official weigh-in, Jared Gordon also had to withdraw from the event.
Henry Cejudo injured his hand earlier in the week, forcing his flyweight showdown with Sergio Pettis off the card. On Friday morning, just before the official weigh-in got underway, Gordon posted to social media that he had to withdraw from his UFC debut bout with Michel Quinones after falling ill.
“I was experiencing food poison symptoms. I was admitted to the hospital, alongside UFC’s doctor. I was advised to use an IV, by both ER and UFC’s doctor, which would make me ineligible to fight because of USADA’s rules,” he continued.
“I’m extremely sorry to everyone who were going to attend and/or watch. Just another bump in the road.”
