Just minutes before UFC 216 was slated to begin, a key matchup was pulled from tonight’s lineup, but all is not lost.

Derrick Lewis (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) suffered a last-minute injury and was forced to withdraw from his heavyweight showdown with Fabricio Werdum (21-7-1 MMA, 9-4 UFC) on tonight’s card, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with a pay-per-view main card following prelims on FX and UFC Fight Pass.

It’s believed Lewis’ previously injured back flared up on him this week. He made weight Friday without issue but realized today he wouldn’t be able to fight through the back pain.

As a result, Walt Harris (10-5 MMA, 3-4 UFC), who was previously scheduled to fight Mark Godbeer (12-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC), steps in on last-minute notice to face Werdum. Godbeer is off the card but reportedly will still receive his show money.

How do you manage to get injured after the weigh ins.

This card really kinda sucks. The Main Event isnt a real PPV Main Event, should've been Mighty Mouse vs Borg with Ferguson vs Lee in the Co-Main. They lose this fight. I can't imagine what they are gonna do, how about put the other chick fight on the PPV the one that's on there doesn't belong anyway. Meanwhile they have a pretty damn solid MW bout with Tavares vs Leites and a potential title contender Bibulatov vs Moraga (a previous title contender) on Fight Pass. Lol

Way to go and Kevin Lee tried his hardest to mess up the Main Event for that fake belt that he shouldn't be fighting for. Why not Leanardo Santos. He strartched Lee. Has never been beaten in the ufc.

I think they deliberately always puts some good fights on the fightpass so more fans will buy it. It worked on me and now I'm waiting for the fights which should be on but there's one less fight,so it's just hype right now.

I like it, unfortunate for Godbeer though. Would have been nice to pick it, too.

Too short of a notice to pick that one. There's a 48 hr time slot to add fights to Big Show.

If this is gonna happen, he is just as much a liability to fight as guys who can't make weight........
