Uriah Hall vs. Vitor Belfort removed from UFC St. Louis after ‘Prime Time’ failed to weigh in

With just more than 24 hours to go, UFC Fight Night 124 has lost its co-main event, as middleweight Uriah Hall failed to step on the scales earlier today (Sat., Jan. 13, 2018) for official weigh ins (full results here).

UFC broadcaster Brendan Fitzgerald announced that Hall could not step on the scale at the end of the weigh-in window, but offered no reason for the disappearance. As a result of Hall’s inability to make weight, his anticipated showdown with former UFC champion Vitor Belfort has been scrapped from the card.

According to a recent report by MMAjunkie’s John Morgan, Hall was apparently one pound away from the 186-pound threshold before medical issues forced him to stop cutting weight.

This is an unfortunate turn of events not only for Hall, who was on the cusp of his most high-profile Octagon appearance to date, but also Belfort, who was planning on walking away from mixed martial arts (MMA) after this weekend in St. Louis.

Hall revealed earlier this week in an interview with MMAjunkie that his “body shut down” last month, so maybe that had something to do with his weight-cut struggles. For what it’s worth, “Prime Time” has never failed to successfully make weight in his UFC career.

As a result of the co-main event fallout, Michael Johnson’s featherweight debut opposite Darren Elkins will now be moved to the main card.

Stick with Mania for further updates on Hall’s condition.
