Visa issues scrap Mitch Gagnon vs Alex Caceres at UFC Fight Night
A bantamweight bout planned for Friday's card in Australia pitting Alex 'Bruce Leeroy' Caceres and Mitch Gagnon has been scrapped and removed from the card.
According to UFC officials, Gagnon had visa issues, which prevented him from traveling from his home country in Canada to the fight in Australia.
Unfortunately, it wasn't possible to solve the visa problems in time for the fight, so the UFC has opted to pull both Caceres and Gagnon from the card.
The UFC Fight Night card will now more forward with 11 fights in total. The fight between Caceres and Gagnon was expected to kick off the main card airing on FOX Sports 1, but as of yet the UFC hasn't announced which fight will get bumped up to take its place.
The undercard is now left with five possible fights to choose from with one taking over a slot on the main card after the void left by Caceres and Gagnon. The UFC is expected to make an announcement in the coming days about the replacement fight.
