UFC Fight Night 186
has lost a strawweight clash between
Sam
Hughes
and Emily
Whitmire

Hughes confirmed the cancellation on social media following an
initial report from
Cageside Press

Whitmire was forced off the card for undisclosed reasons.

It’s currently unknown if the bout will be rebooked for a future
event or if Hughes will receive a replacement foe. UFC Fight Night

headlined by a heavyweight tilt pitting Jairzinho

A three-time Legacy Fighting Alliance veteran, Hughes is coming off
a first-round TKO loss to Tecia

meanwhile, is 2-3 in the Octagon and is coming off back-to-back
submission losses against Polyana
Viana
