UFC Vegas 64 loses heavyweight bout just hours prior to event

Today’s UFC Vegas 64 event is down to eleven fights after losing a slated heavyweight contest between Josh Parisian and Chase Sherman.

Parisian (15-5 MMA) and Sherman (16-10 MMA) were scheduled to collide on the main card of tonight’s UFC event in Las Vegas. However, just hours before the commencement of the fight card, Parisian took to social media to announce that his bout with Sherman was off.

“One of the worst days of my life. I unfortunately will not be fighting, tonight. I woke up at 1:07am this morning with my heart beating out of my chest and soaked in sweat. I tried to relax over the next 2 hours, but I was going in and out of chest pain, cold sweats, nausea, and light headedness. I decided to go to the ER at around 3am and was there until 8:30am. They were able to get rid of my nausea and chest pain, but my palpitations had gotten worse. In over 50 fights, I’ve never pulled or been pulled from one. I am devastated for myself, everyone that helped me this camp, the UFC, the fans, and my opponent. I’ll be seeing my cardiologist when I get home to see what is going on with my heart and go from there.”
