Following his championship season in 2018, Louis Taylor will not compete in the Professional Fighters League’s 2019 campaign.

Recently Taylor announced that he is not going to compete in the upcoming welterweight tournament as scheduled. The veteran fighter, who won the middleweight competition last year, did not offer any specific details.

ESPN is reporting, however, that the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) has confirmed that Taylor did not meet the medical requirements to compete. No additional information was provided by the commission or the PFL.

The 39-year-old Taylor (18-4-1) quickly knocked out  Abusupiyan Magomedov in December to win the 2018 season and $1 million dollars.
