Bantamweights Manny Bermudez and Davey Grant will no longer meet at UFC Fight Night 130 according to a report from Jim Edwards, who has learned that Grant was removed from the bout after he was diagnosed with a staph infection.
UFC Fight Night 130 goes down Sunday in Liverpool, England.
Bermudez was to put his clean record on the line Sunday, which would have been his second in the Octagon after defeating Albert Morales at UFC on Fox 28.
Grant is the runner-up of “The Ultimate Fighter 18,” where he lost to Chris Holdsworth. He went 1-2 in the UFC after defeating Marlon Vera and losing to Damian Stasiak.
