BREAKING: UFC Vegas 17 Fight Scrapped Just Before Weigh-ins
Just before the weigh-ins, a UFC Vegas 17 bout has been canned.
Karl Roberson was scheduled to take on Dalcha Lungiambula. That plan blew up in smoke at the last-minute. Roberson took to his Instagram Stories to reveal that “COVID issues” are to blame for his bout being canceled.
Roberson was hoping to rebound from his June loss to Marvin Vettori. Lungiambula was also in search of a bounce-back win after his loss to Magomed Ankalaev back in November 2019.
UFC Vegas 17 takes place on Saturday night, December 19. This will be the final UFC card of 2020. In the main event, Stephen Thompson will share the Octagon with Geoff Neal. The co-main event will see Jose Aldo go one-on-one with Marlon Vera.
