It was an interesting day for the UFC, as the co-main event for Saturday's UFC 209 pay-per-view was pulled after Khabib Nurmagomedov failed to weigh-in. The top lightweight contender was scheduled to face Tony Ferguson for the interim title, but "The Eagle" was sent to the hospital early Friday morning hours before weigh-ins with issues.
Following his hospitalization, UFC officials had no choice but to pull the co-main event. They did tell MMAjunkie that Nurmagomedov has been released, but was not medically cleared. Ferguson weighed in at 154.5 pounds, making weight.
The ceremonial weigh-ins for the event stream live at 7 p.m. The main event between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson for the welterweight title is official, as both champion and challenger made weight.
