UFC on FOX 28: Gilbert Burns Pulled From Orlando Card
By FCF Staff
Saturday’s UFC on FOX 28 card has incurred a late scratch, as lightweight Gilbert Burns has been pulled from a scheduled bout with Olivier Aubin-Mercier.
Recently the promotion posted the following statement:
Saturday’s UFC Fight Night bout between Gilbert Burns and Olivier Aubin-Mercier has been removed from the card at Amway Center in Orlando. Upon his arrival, the UFC medical team determined that it would be unsafe for Burns to cut additional weight necessary to meet the 156-pound limit. The card will proceed as scheduled with twelve fights.
The 31 year-old Burns is coming off a knockout win over Jason Saggo in September, and has gone 3-2 in his last five bouts.
UFC on FOX 28 will take place in Orlando, Florida.
