UFC flyweight contender Manel Kape won’t be fighting on Saturday’s night UFC Vegas 52 event.
The 28-year-old Angolian was scheduled to face Su Mudaerji, but Kape withdrew due to personal reasons and the bout was scrapped. UFC was unable to find a replacement on such a short notice therefore the bout will be postponed.
Kape is on a two-fight winning streak, as he defeated Ode’ Osbourne and Zhalgas Zhumagulov in the second half of 2021.
Mudaerji will have to wait for the chance to potentially extend his winning streak to four fights. “The Tibetan Eagle” has only been able to compete once per year since 2019, picking up wins over Andre Soukhamthath, Malcolm Gordon, and Zarrukh Adashev.
