UFC 270 loses Vieira-Turman; Topuria reportedly out vs. Jourdain
UFC 270 is down multiple fights just a day before the event is scheduled to take place.
Rodolfo Vieira is out of his middleweight bout against Wellington Turman for medical reasons that aren't related to COVID-19 or weight cutting, the promotion confirmed to ESPN's Marc Raimondi.
Ilia Topuria withdrew from his featherweight clash with Charles Jourdain due to issues with his weight cut, sources told MMA reporter Ariel Helwani on Friday.
Vieira-Turman and Topuria-Jourdain were slated to kick off Saturday's main card and close out the preliminary card, respectively.
A welterweight fight between Trevin Giles and Michael Morales has been moved to the main card. Kay Hansen versus Jasmine Jasudavicius and Jack Della Maddalena versus Pete Rodriguez are now set for the televised prelims instead of the early prelims.
The pay-per-view event will proceed with 11 bouts, including Francis Ngannou versus Ciryl Gane in the main event and Brandon Moreno versus Deiveson Figueiredo 3 in the co-headliner.
