A flyweight bout has been nixed from the match card of the UFC Vegas 81.
According to the latest reports, David Dvorak vs Tatsuro Taira won’t be a part of the UFC Vegas 81 match card anymore on October 14, 2023. The match has been canceled and there will be no replacements.
Marcel Dorff of EuroSports was the first one to reveal this news. However, the reason behind the cancellation of this match hasn’t been revealed yet.
Tatsuro Taira is undefeated in MMA so far. He made his UFC debut in May 2022 against Carlos Candelario in an impressive fashion. Taira won all four of his UFC matches so far and is coming off a unanimous decision win against Edgar Cháirez at UFC 290.
On the other hand, David Dvorak is on a three-fight losing streak. His last UFC win came back in May 2021 against Juancamilo Ronderos. He is coming off a unanimous decision loss against Steve Erceg earlier this year in June.
Now, it remains to be seen whether UFC will reschedule this match at any other Fight Night event or not.
