Bethe Correia out of UFC 227 fight against Irene Aldana

After an ongoing eye injury, Correia has been forced to withdraw from Saturday’s card in Los Angeles, California.

Reported by Combate on Tuesday night, it has now been confirmed that the proposed bantamweight clash has now been pulled from the card.

Having suffered an eye injury last year, Correia recently told reporters that her training camp was going well and everything felt “perfect” in the lead up to her fight.

Her eye injury has seemingly flared up again and the contest will no longer go ahead.

A replacement for Aldana will not be found and UFC 227 will go ahead with a 12 fight card this Saturday.
