Published:

The trend of last-minute fight cancellations continues in the

Ultimate Fighting Championship.

UFC Fight Night 236, which goes down at the promotion’s Apex
facility on Feb. 10, has lost its third fight within a span of 24
hours.

As per a UFC announcement, Bosnia’s Damir
Hadzovic (14-7) is out of a booking against Belgian debutant
Bolaji
Oki (8-1) due to visa issues and will be replaced by
Dana White’s Conteder Series 2023 competitor Timothy
Cuamba (8-1). “Twilight Timmy” is riding a five-fight win
streak topped off by a stoppage win under the Tuff
N Uff banner last week. On the other hand, Oki hasn’t lost a
fight since his professional debut in 2018.

Meanwhile, a shoulder injury has forced middleweight prospect
Tresean
Gore (4-2) out of his booking against A.J. Dobson
(7-2), which was scheduled for the prelims card of
UFC 298 on Feb. 17 in Anaheim, California. While Dobson teased
new fight news soon, he is yet to find an opponent as of the
writing of this item.

“Gutted posting this, but the UFC didn’t clear me to fight,” Gore
wrote on Instagram. “I initially was going to fight anyway, but my
coach made me [get] an MRI because he didn’t want me fighting with
one arm! Man, I don’t understand why some things happen, but it’s
all on God’s time, not mine! I will be back and when the time is
right, I will be P4P. I can’t allow injuries to kill my dream!”
