Last weekend’s UFC Fight Night was a “complete disaster”

It seemed like everything that could go wrong actually went wrong for the UFC in Las Vegas last weekend.

Per Tapology, the UFC Fight Night event ended up with 12 canceled or fizzled bouts.

Nolan King of MMA Junkie commented: “I can safely say, I’ve never seen anything quite like three dropouts (with two, potentially three, replacement opponents found) within 36 hours of a UFC fight night.” Ant Walker and Patrick Auger discuss the fallout from the UFC Fight Night event held at the UFC APEX facility.

Walker describes the event as “witnessing a trainwreck.” Furthermore, Ed Herman was offered just $10,000 for his canceled fight. In his last bout, his disclosed show purse was $54,000. Can you recall a similar chain of events happening before and during a UFC event?
