UFC Fight Night 83 Loses Another Planned Bout

As it currently stands, the UFC Fight Night 83 card sits without three complete bouts.

According to a report by MMAjunkie.com on Monday, Trevor Smith has been forced out of a planned fight with Leonardo Augusto Guimaraes for the event.

The card takes place this Sunday from Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center. The headline fight is scheduled to pit Donald Cerrone against Alex Oliveira live on FOX Sports 1.

Smith (13-6) was looking to move above the .500 mark inside the Octagon after splitting his six bouts. Guimaraes (11-1) has yet to make his UFC debut, but has won his last seven overall.

The card was originally set to feature Cerrone vs. Tim Means, but Means was removed after issues with a drug test. Cody Garbrandt lost his planned opponent, John Lineker, earlier on Monday, while Lauren Murphy remains in the lineup despite Sarah Moraes bowing out recently.

Fights that are still on to this point include Derek Brunson-Roan Carneiro, Dennis Bermudez-Tatsuya Kawajiri, Chris Camozzi-Joe Riggs and James Krause-Shane Campbell.
