ESPN’s Ariel Helwani took to Twitter to reveal that sources have told him that Penne vs. Esquibel is no longer on tonight’s card:

As Helwani mentioned, Penne weighed in at 118 pounds during the weigh-ins. The reasoning for the cancellation isn’t clear despite many already pointing to Penne’s scale fail as the culprit. In the past, we’ve seen fighters miss weight but wider margins yet those bouts went on. We’ll update you on the reasoning when that bit of news becomes available.

UFC on ESPN 1 will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between Cain Velasquez and Francis Ngannou. The co-main event will see lightweights Paul Felder and James Vick collide.
