The UFC’s upcoming May 8 card has taken another, significant hit, as it’s being reported that Diego Sanchez will no longer compete.

Sanchez was scheduled to fight Donald Cerrone at the event, in what was expected to be his final fight. Recently, however,  Carlos Contreras Legaspi reported that Sanchez has withdrawn from the fight. Other outlets have also confirmed with sources the 39-year-old fighter is off the card.

Reasons for Sanchez’s removal are not known as this is being written. The UFC is reportedly looking for another opponent for Cerrone.

The news comes not long after T.J. Dillashaw announced he has pulled out of a May 8 bout with Cory Sandhagen, due to a cut he incurred. That fight was scheduled to headline the UFC event.
