The lightweight contender Guram Kutateladze has been a part of back to back match cancellations; he recently addressed through his social media account that he won’t be able to participate in the upcoming fight against Jamie Mullarkey; he claims that due to visa issues, he can’t travel abroad for his scheduled match and wants everyone to know that he did not intentionally pull out.
The main event is a thrilling flyweight clash between Kai-Kara France and Amir Albazi, a tight knock that is going to play a deciding role for both their careers. The match was scheduled to take place in UFC Apex Las Vegas; this was expected to be Kutateladze’s third match in the UFC, so far he has competed twice, and his record in the UFC is 1-1, and his professional MMA record is 12-3.
Jamie Mullarkey will now fight against Muhammed Naimov, who, in a short period of time, stepped in as a replacement.
Guram Kutateladze on withdrawing from the event
Guram Kutateladze took the time to upload an Instagram video sparring with Khamzat Chimaev to address that he won’t be part of the upcoming UFC event due to complexities faced with travelling to the U.S.
He shall soon be back, and it will be very interesting to see who the UFC decides to match him up against next. “Fight Update: I did not pull out from the fight, I was pulled due to visa complications. Ready and prepared for fight with anybody.
Fight date is being worked on as we speak. (Upcoming weeks, we are back). Stop speculation. Thanks for understanding. God bless”. The upcoming UFC event is filled with exciting matches; Jared Gordon will be seen after his controversial loss against Paddy Pimblett and an interesting Draw against Bobby Green, which was definitely in his favour as he was brutally knocked out yet was pulled out of the jaws of defeat, and the judges declared the match a draw.
