“The commission had a concern regarding my lips and my use of chapstick during the physical exam prior to weigh-ins, so they requested that I be cleared by a dermatologist. So right after weigh-ins the commission rush me to get clearance, which I was granted by the dermatologist. But (Friday night), at the arena, the commission struck again and canceled the fight. You can’t reason with this commission, it kinda felted personal.

“I am hopeful the UFC will rebook our fight ASAP.”
