    The UFC is currently seeking a welterweight fighter willing to take on a rising contender Mike Perry on short notice.

    Thiago Alves' withdrawal from UFC Pittsburgh marks the 11th main or co-main event change to the UFC calendar so far in 2017.

    Thiago Alves was stranded due to Irma. Decided against leaving early to stay with his wife and child.


    A fighter pulls out with a legit reason, for once.

    Not to be a jerk here, but he knew the hurricane was coming before it got there. He could've made preparations to ensure that the fight goes down.

    Family / family safety is more important than fighting.
