Andrew Craig and Chris Camozzi Removed From Fight Night 39

UFC middleweights Andrew Craig and Chris Camozzi were set to square off in Abu Dhabi tomorrow night, but reports are now confirming that the bout has been pulled from the prelims all together. Craig, apparently suffering from tonsillitis, was forced to withdraw from the card.

With the UFC unable to find a late replacement on such short notice, Camozzi had no choice but to scrap his hopes of fighting in Abu Dhabi. UFC Fight Night 39 takes a hit and it now reduced to eight fights overall. Craig was last seen getting choked out by Luke Barnatt at Fight Night 30, and Camozzi is riding a two fight skid to Lorenz Larkin and Jacare Souza.
