Sean Santella Forced Out Of UFC 201 Matchup With Wilson Reis


Sean Santella will not be making his Octagon debut this month at UFC 201 vs. Wilson Reis.

The flyweight posted on social media Saturday that officials have taken him off the card because there is not enough time before July 30 to get his medical information cleared.

“Well talk about the biggest blue ball of all time but I’m sad to announce that my UFC debut has been cancelled,” Santella posted. “They said I need more medicals done and need to see their Drs. Unfortunately there’s just not enough time before UFC 201.

“I had everything ready to go and flights booked.”

Santella was tabbed as a replacement for UFC champion Demetrious Johnson to keep Reis on the card. No word yet if another flyweight will be brought in or signed to meet Reis.
