A planned contest between David Mitchell and Hyun Gyu Lim was called off hours before weigh-ins for Saturday’s UFC on Fuel TV: Franklin vs. Le event in China.
UFC doctors determined that Lim was unfit to participate in the fight. He was attempting to cut enough weight to make the bout.
According to a statement made by the UFC, Mitchell will be paid his show money.
This was to be the UFC debut for Lim, who is 10-3-1 in his career including five consecutive victories. Mitchell (11-2) is 0-2 in his UFC career.
