UFC 220 Loses Preliminary Bout to Injury

January 17, 2018

Just three days out from fight time and the UFC 220: Miocic vs. Ngannou fight card has been bitten by the injury bug.

An early preliminary bout slated to air on UFC Fight Pass has been canceled, according to UFC officials. Strawweight Jamie Moyle suffered an undisclosed injury that knocked her out of a bout with Maryna Moroz.

Moroz had been hoping to get in the Octagon and rebound from her June loss to former champion Carla Esparza. Moyle also last fought in June, losing a decision to Viviane Pereira.

With such little time to go until the cage door closes, the UFC opted to cancel the bout. UFC 220 at TD Garden in Boston will proceed with 11 bouts, barring any further changes.
