UFC on FS1 3: Medical Issue Delays Assuncao-Dillashaw


By FCF Staff

Not long after reports surfaced relaying that a bantamweight bout between T.J. Dillashaw and Raphael Assuncao was being targeted for UFC on FS1 3, word has come out that the bout is going to be postponed.

According to a follow up report from MMA Junkie.com, a medical issue is going to prevent Assuncao from competing on September 4th, and as a result, the fight will be booked for another card. The fight, when and if it takes place, will feature the #9 ranked bantamweight in Dillashaw facing the #6 ranked Assuncao.

The third UFC on FOX Sports 1 card will be hosted by the Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.  A light-heavyweight fight between Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader will headline the event.
