The UFC has announced the featherweight fight, which was scheduled for tonight’s main card, has been canceled after Askar (11-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) was forced to withdraw after he was not medically cleared to compete.
The cancellation marks the third opponent who withdrew from a UFC Fight Night 184 booking against Stamann (19-3-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC). Merab Dvalishvili was originally scheduled for the fight but withdrew after catching COVID-19; Stamann was later paired up with Andre Ewell.
Like Dvalishvili, Ewell also withdrew due to a positive COVID-19 test. On less than one week’s notice, Askar stepped in to replace Ewell in what would’ve been his promotional debut.
With the removal the UFC Fight Night 184 lineup includes:
MAIN CARD (ESPN+, 8 p.m. ET)
Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov
Frankie Edgar vs. Cory Sandhagen
Clay Guida vs. Michael Johnson
Manel Kape vs. Alexandre Pantoja
Beneil Dariush vs. Diego Ferreira
PRELIMINARY CARD (ESPN+, 5 p.m. ET)
