Damn that sucks.

Nevertheless, congrats to Sakara and Cote - because truthfully, they deserved to be on the PPV card in the first place.

Hi, I am Nick coach Brian Bird,

Very bad news regarding Nick Ring's fight. He has been pulled from the card by UFC doctor orders. Nick became very ill in the middle of the night. Likely from a virus that took over from a weakened immune system from cutting weight. I saw him early in the morning and it was clear he was incredibly sick. We called the UFC officials and they brought in their doctor to inspect him and after made it clear he is not ok to fight. Nick is resting in bed on IV at the moment. Nick never asked to pull out and was very concerned with letting down, his friends, fans, the UFC, and his opponent Constantinos Philippou. This really sucks but safety comes first.

The only good news is his moustache still looks good. :-)

I will keep you all updated on his progress.

Getting sick between the weigh-ins and the fight is one of my worst fears surrounding a fight. I've seen multiple people get really bad food poisoning and not be able to fight (or fight and get killed because they have zero energy). Terrible news :(

Shame for Nick, hope he can recover and find another fight quick.

Dana was saying in the Ariel interview after the weigh ins that "everyone was sick in Montreal" and even GSP was avoiding some media obligations because he didn't want to get sick.
