Amanda Nunes withdrew from her ladies’s bantamweight title bout with Valentina Shevchenko Saturday on the morning of the struggle. Nunes cited an sickness as the rationale for her absence and provided an apology to her followers by way of Twitter late Saturday night time.

“Sorry to all my true followers,” Nunes wrote. “The battle might be rescheduled and I will probably be again one hundred pc.”

Nunes, the defending bantamweight champ, is driving a 5-struggle win streak and was trying to defend her title for the second time.

In the meantime, in a press convention following UFC 213, UFC president Dana White vowed by no means to guide the ladies’s bantamweight title in a foremost occasion ever once more.
