Brad Riddell withdraws from upcoming UFC fight vs. Thiago Moises

Brad Riddell is out, leaving Thiago Moises currently without an opponent.

The longtime lightweight fighters were expected to square off March 16 at a UFC Fight Night event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. With Riddell (10-4 MMA, 4-3 UFC) out for undisclosed reasons, it’s unclear if Moises (17-7 MMA, 6-5 UFC) will remain on the card against a new opponent.

Two people with knowledge of the change informed MMA Junkie of it Wednesday but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

If he remains on the card, Moises will look to bounce back after a September loss to Benoit Saint Denis. He’s 2-1 in his most recent three with wins over Christos Giagos and Melquizael Costa.

With the change, the UFC Fight Night lineup for March 16 includes:

  • Tai Tuivasa vs. Marcin Tybura

  • Kennedy Nzechukwu vs. Ovince Saint Preux

  • Mike Davis vs. Natan Levy

  • Macy Chiasson vs. Pannie Kianzad

  • Thiago Moises vs. TBA

  • Josh Culibao vs. Danny Silva

  • Jafel Filho vs. Ode Osbourne

  • Isaac Dulgarian vs. Christian Rodriguez

  • Bryan Battle vs. Ange Loosa

  • Jaqueline Amorim vs. Cory McKenna

  • Chad Anheliger vs. Charalampos Grigoriou

  • Chelsea Chandler vs. Josiane Nunes
