UFC lightweight Yves Edwards, spoke to mmafighting.com in regards to the cancellation of his fight with Jeremy Stephens last night for UFC on FX 5.
“I got the arena and I saw that the fights’ order was changing. I didn’t know what was going on. My corner was trying to keep me focused, they didn’t really tell me anything. Throughout the fight, my night got moved around.
Toward the end of the night, Dana told me, ‘I appreciate you being ready all night, but, I’m don’t think there’s going to be a fight tonight.’ It’s one of those things where I put in all the work and it didn’t happen. I’m kind of upset.”
UFC president Dana White, has since said he will try and get Edwards a fight on an upcoming card as soon as possible.
