Amanda Nunes, the UFC women’s bantamweight champ, was supposed to rematch with Valentina Shevchenko in the main event of UFC 213 on Saturday night, but was hospitalized after the weigh-ins. According to Dana White, the doctors cleared her. She decided not to fight, though, leaving UFC 213 with Robert Whittaker versus Yoel Romero as a main event.

Naturally, that’s impacted the value of Nunes’ stock.

Here’s her statement on the matter:

Everyone is wanting to hear my side so here it is….. I have chronic sinusitis , I have fought with it before but this time It didn’t work out, during the weight cut I was unable to breath and felt off balance from the pressure in my sinuses. I was not feeling well enough to risk getting punched in the head with such pressure. I was taken to the hospital after weigh ins and they only checked my blood and dehydration so cleared me based on that. The next day I went back and they did a CT scan and found a build up and I was prescribed antibiotics and referred to a specialist. I have never pulled out of a fight before. I am sorry to all my fans that came out to see me, I’ll make it up to you the next time I step in the cage. The fight is being rescheduled. I still want this fight. I still want this opponent. Thank you todos querem ouvir o meu lado da história sobre o que aconteceu, eu fui diagnosticada com sinusite crônica. Ja tive que lidar com isso antes, mas dessa vez foi pior… Durante a perda de peso senti fortes tonturas e muita dificuldade de respirar. Eu não poderia correr o risco de sofrer grandes impactos na cabeça. Após a pesagem oficial, fui ao hospital, onde apenas checaram meu sangue e desidratação. Continuei me sentindo muito mal, e na dia seguinte voltei ao hospital, onde fizeram uma ressonância da minha cabeça e foi diagnosticada a infecção. Fui medicada com antibióticos e encaminhado a um especialista. Nunca precisei cancelar uma luta antes, mas por motivos de saúde não pude fazer meu trabalho por completo nesse final de semana. A luta já foi remarcada!!! E eu quero muito essa luta com essa mesma adversária! Peço desculpas aos meus fãs.. e garanto que estarei mais preparada do que nunca!
