The last minute illness bug has struck again, potentially wiping out tonight’s UFC 213’s main event fight between women’s bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko. According to reporters in the know, Nunes was feeling ill all week and was hospitalized shortly after weigh-ins.

It’s unclear whether Nunes being sick is a side effect of weight cutting, but it wouldn’t be the first (or last) time a big fight is cancelled over those kinds of issues. Most recently, UFC 209 lost its co-main event of Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov after Khabib was hospitalized during his weight cut.
