Earlier today at UFC 208’s official weigh-ins it was announced that prelim fight between Marcin Tybura (1-1) and newcomer Justin Willis (0-0) had been scratched. It was determined by UFC doctors that Willis was unfit to fight. Willis had originally taken this fight on short notice. In a statement from Willis via Facebook he states, “I did everything I could to make weight for the fight this weekend but due to the short notice my body shut down during the weight cut and the UFC doctors wouldn’t clear me to fight.”
Marcin Tybura will still receive his fight purse and show money. UFC 208 will take place Saturday February 11th 2017 at the Barclay’s center in Brooklyn, New York.
