UFC on ABC 6 has taken yet another hit with less than a week to go before fight night.

Melsik Baghdasaryan announced via Instagram Stories that he is out of his featherweight matchup against Muhammadjon Naimov due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder. UFC on ABC 6 takes place on Saturday at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It is currently unknown if Naimov will remain on the card against a replacement opponent.

“Hello everyone, I have bad news,” Baghdasaryan said. “My fight got canceled. I got injured, torn labrum on my left shoulder. Thanks everyone for support. I’ll be back as soon as possible.”



This is the latest in a series of last-minute blows for the UFC Saudi Arabia card, starting with Ikram Aliskerov replacing Khamzat Chimaev in the main event against Robert Whittaker on 9 days’ notice. Sedriques Dumas will also replace Abu Azaitar on short notice in a middleweight booking against Denis Tiuliulin. Meanwhile, a bantamweight matchup between Farid Basharat and Montel Jackson fell through due to Basharat pulling out.

Baghdasaryan last fought Tucker Lutz in July 2023, earning a unanimous decision win to bounce back from his first UFC loss against Joshua Culibao. Baghdasaryan was then scheduled to face France’s William Gomis at a UFC Fight Night event in February before Gomis pulled out. Baghdasaryan was rebooked a week later against undefeated debutant Hyder Amil, but “The Gun” was forced out due to an injury.
