Plans for a fight between Volkan Oezdemir and Nikita Krylov lasted a week.

Danny Lee 6-putts on 18th hole, withdraws with wrist injury
Things went from bad to worse for Danny Lee at Winged Foot on Saturday. The 30-year-old fell apart on the final hole during Round 3 of the U.S. Open, missing a four-foot putt and then requiring five more tries before heading into the clubhouse. Shortly thereafter, he pulled out of the tournament with a wrist injury. Danny Lee withdrew from the US Open at Winged Foot after 6 (yes, six) putting from 4ft (yes, four) on the 18th green of his 3rd round. It’s not easy to watch, quite frankly. Feel for you, Danny.

It's unclear if the UFC plans to find a replacement to face Krylov.
Oezdemir had been looking to rebound from a brutal knockout loss to Jiri Prochazka at UFC 251 in July. "No Time" was riding a two-fight winning streak before that defeat, a stretch that included a decision over Aleksandar Rakic and a stoppage of Ilir Latifi.
Krylov has alternated wins and losses in his past five contests. "The Miner" most recently picked up a victory over Johnny Walker at UFC Brasilia in March.
