As first reported by FloCombat, Gilbert Burns vs. Olivier Aubin-Mercier at Saturday’s UFC on Fox 28 card in Orlando, Florida, has been scrapped over weight-cutting concerns. The news was confirmed by the UFC:

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.

Very happy to see the UFC putting their foot down on weight cutting. Hopefully bigger and more adequate measures can be taken so it doesn't come down to fight week when this is cancelled.
