UFC 177 has taken another hit.

On Friday afternoon, the UFC confirmed that Henry Cejudo was removed from the event due to medical reasons. No exact cause for his removal was reported. The fight card from Sacramento, CA, will carry on with 9 bouts.

Cejudo, an Olympic medalist in freestyle wrestling, was expected to make his UFC debut against Scott Jorgensen on the FOX Sports 1 preliminary card. That contest has been scratched.
