One bout has been scraped from the UFC St. Louis card.

That bout was Zak Cummings taking on Thiago Alves. The reason for the bout being pulled from the card that takes place this weekend is due to an injury.

Cummings noted on his official Twitter account that he hit his head on a handrail and “cracked my ******* skull.”

Cummings has won his last two fights and was looking at extending his winning streak at this upcoming event against Alves. The UFC has since confirmed that the bout has been removed from the lineup.

You can see his social media post here:

“I’m absolutely ******* devastated right now. This one of the best cuts I’ve ever had and slipped while moving from the tub to the ground and cracked my ******* skull on a handrail. I’ve missed most of my 3 months olds entire life! You disgust me.”
