The main card for UFC Vegas 26 remains intact, following the fighter weigh-ins. But, Ryan Benoit is no longer competing, after he had difficulties standing on the scale.

Benoit was scheduled to fight Zarrukh Adashev on Saturday. But, the veteran fighter was shaking as he attempted to weigh in, so much so, he was unable to stand steady enough to get an accurate weight. After Benoit’s second attempt, where he came in at 129 pounds, the fight was called off.

Philipe Lins was also pulled from the event, as he was not medically cleared to fight Ben Rothwell as scheduled.
