As it turns out, Michael Chiesa won’t be fighting at UFC 223 after all.

Michael Chiesa - @MikeMav22

A decision was made by the New York State Athletic Commission to pull me from UFC 223. I’m devastated to say the least. @Showtimepettis I hope to run this match up ASAP, June 9th in your backyard. That’s all I have to say for now. Much love.

4 fight main card....this is bullshit. The loss of Chiesa vs Pettis makes this go from a great overall card to just good now at the least

Conor's in jail now. He fucked this card up like a little moron. He should be released. The guy is a tool.

Champ Rose Namajunas vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk – for women’s strawweight title
Calvin Kattar vs. Renato Moicano
Paul Felder vs. Al Iaquinta

PRELIMINARY CARD (FS1, 8 p.m. ET)

Zabit is now on the PPV. AES/Rawlings is the 2nd fight on FS1 and Clark/Rodriquez is on FP and the lock is now 7:30pm ET.

And people love this clown. He needs to disappear for good. Just screwed up 3 solid fights. Well 2, no one cares about Artem.

Ironically, Khabib's fellow countryman, Zabit, is one of the few that benefited from Conor's tantrum. He goes from the 1st fight on fight pass to the 2nd fight on the PPV main card. He now gets the exposure he deserves, but it's unfortunate it had to come from the fate of losing 3 other fights.

This card will go down in history...

3 fights completely scratched...

And the Main Event title fight switched on about 10 days notice.

Holloway didn't make weight (doctors stopped him from trying any further).

So they're trying to get Pettis as replacement.
