UFC On FOX 10 Loses Adam Khaliev vs. Pascal Krauss Match

UFC on FOX 10 is set to take place at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois on the 25th of this month.  The card is headlined by lightweights Josh Thomson and former division champion Benson Henderson; the match will mark Henderson’s first return to the Octagon since losing his belt to Anthony Pettis at UFC 164 in August of last year.

Aside from the Henderson / Thomson fight, the card is peppered with other great bouts including the reborn and hot Gabe Gonzaga, facing off against fellow heavyweight Stipe Miocic; number 12 vs. number 8, respectively.

The card also feature’s the sophomore performance of undefeated bantamweight Sergio Pettis, as he takes on Alex Caceres, as well as solid match between lightweights Donald Cerrone and Adriano Martins.

However, the card has suffered a setback. The UFC announced yesterday, that the Adam Khaliev vs. Pascal Krauss match has been scratched from the event.

    Bah, this ***** man! I dont get it, now we have to worry about injuries as well as this fighting cancelations for undisclosure reasons – what the hell is that all about!? This was probably the fight I wanted the see the most because of Khaliev since Ive been following him (so to say) for a while and I think he has a lot of talent!

    this is from pascal's fb-page: "Here is what happened. My opponent did not get cleared for the fight. So the ufc offered me a new opponent (props to J. Silva for finding someone so quickly). Since i've been dealing with some health issues the last couple weeks, my plan was to fight the Russian and then take some time off. As things changed, I took it as a sign and asked the ufc to push the fight back. As much as I love fighting and putting on a show for all you guys, I made this decision for my health n the longevity of my career.
    And trust me, it wasn't easy!!!"
