Undefeated star Ottman Azaitar fired by UFC for weird bubble breach

Undefeated star Ottman Azaitar fired by UFC for weird bubble breach”

Speaking to BT Sport after the ceremonial weigh-ins, White said: "He (Azaitar) and his team cut off their wrist bands, gave them to somebody outside the bubble, I don't know how they even did it".

Azaitar planned to extend his win streak to 14-0 this weekend by a win over Matt Frevola. It has now been revealed that Azaitar violated safety protocols and has subsequently been released from the UFC.

Confirming with MMA Junkie reporter, Farah Hannoun that Azaitar had been released from his UFC contract, UFC president, Dana White spoke with BT Sports reporter, Adam Catterall and detailed how Azaitar had broken the health and safety protocols, in rather freaky fashion it has to be said - resulting in his release.

"The organisation continues to keep the health and safety of all participants as the top priority and will take action against anyone that does not adhere to the strict measures put in place".

UFC President Dana White later confirmed this freaky story's veracity.

"Now, when security tried to stop him, he wouldn't stop either way", said White, adding that the fighter has been cut from his roster. Either way, it's just...yeah, [Azaitar]'s gone.

Given that Azaitar has gone 13-0 to date, and that includes two stoppage wins in the UFC, the 30-year-old will nearly certainly find a new promotional home soon. Tsarukyan's original opponent was forced off the card because of medical reasons. Arman Tsarukyan was set to face Nasrat Haqparast, but Haqparast fell ill and was unable to attend weigh-ins, so his bout was also canceled. While Tsarukyan missed weight, the rearranged fight with Frevola will go ahead although Tsarukyan will forfeit 20 per cent of his fight purse. The middleweight bout between Andrew Sanchez and Makhmud Muradov has since been elevated on the main card.

After the news that Azaitar had been released from the UFC surfaced, the promotion issued a statement on the incident.
