UFC 228 WEIGH-IN VIDEOS- NICCO MONTANO OUT WITH A KIDNEY ISSUE

Reported By MMAFighting.com

Dallas, TX (September 7th, 2018)– Nicco Montaño was taken to the hospital Friday morning due to kidney issues, per her team.

The UFC women’s flyweight champion will not compete Saturday at UFC 228 in a scheduled title fight with Valentina Shevchenko, the UFC officially announced Friday morning. Montaño was taken to a Dallas hospital prior to the official weigh-ins on the advice of the UFC’s medical team, Montaño’s training partner Steve Hanna told MMA Fighting in a statement.

“She will be fine in a few days,” Hanna’s statement read. “The UFC medical team was called in to evaluate her this morning during the process of her weight cut. They determined that she had to cease cutting weight and be transported to and treated at the local hospital for issues regarding her kidney function.”

Before the end of the official weigh-ins, the UFC announced that Montaño was out of UFC 228 and Shevchenko would not fight a replacement opponent. The card will move on with 13 fights, and Jessica Andrade vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz will take Montaño vs. Shevchenko’s place as the co-main event.

“As a precautionary measure, UFC flyweight Nicco Montaño was transported to a medical facility Friday morning due to health concerns,” the UFC statement read. “The scheduled championship bout between Montaño & Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 228 has been cancelled.”
