Zak Cummings suffered an injury Friday and will no longer be able to compete at the event.
No replacement for Cummings will be sought out by the promotion, and thus former title challenger Thiago Alves has been removed from the card.
A devastated Zak Cummings recently took to Twitter where he announced that the injury had occured while he was attempting to step out of the bathtub and accidently slipped.
“I’m absolutely fucking devastated right now. This one of the best cuts I’ve ever had and slipped while moving from the tub to the ground and cracked my fucking skull on a handrail. I’ve missed most of my 3 months olds entire life! You disgust me.” – Zak Cummings
In a follow up to his previous tweet Cummings announced that he was currently choosing between stitches or staples and added that he will fight Thiago Alves as soon as he is cleared by doctors.
“I’m in ER now figuring out stitches or staples. CT and everything, I’ll fight Alves a soon as I’m cleared hopefully.” – Zak Cummings
Cummings is currently riding a two-fight win streak with both victories coming by way of submission over opponets Nathan Coy and Alexander Yakovlev.
Meanwhile, former UFC welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves was most recently seen in action this past April where he retired Patrick Cote via unanimous deicison.
