Assuncao out of UFC Fight Night


Raphael Assuncao won’t be fighting on Feb. 27.

Scheduled to fight Raoni Barcelos in a pivotal bantamweight matchup, Assuncao (27-8 MMA, 14-7 UFC) has withdrawn from the UFC Fight Night event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas for unknown reasons.

Two people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the withdrawal but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
