MMAFighting.com is reporting UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes has pulled out of the UFC 213 main event with Valentina Shevchenko with illness. Multiple reports appear to confirm the cancellation, but the UFC has not publicly released a statement as of yet.

Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker’s interim middleweight fight has been upgraded to the main event, leaving the card with 11 bouts.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the main event cancellation with MMAJunkie.

BREAKING: UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk is trying to replace Nunes against Shevchenko. This seems unlikely to proceed but the champion is trying nonetheless.

 

Stay tuned to this developing story.
