Amanda Nunes, who was scheduled to headline tonight’s UFC 213 pay-per-view in a bout against Valentina Shevchenko, has dropped out due to undisclosed medical reasons.

The fight, for the bantamweight belt, is now off the card; the interim middleweight title fight involving Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker is now the main event, according to MMAFighting.com.
