Marcin Tybura’s bout with Jairzinho Rozenstruik has been removed from the UFC 273 card scheduled for Saturday night. 

Tybura successfully made weight for the bout on Friday morning, but an undisclosed illness forced his withdrawal later that afternoon. 

“Due to illness, Marcin Tybura has been removed from his heavyweight bout with Jairzinho Rozenstruik. As a result, this bout has been canceled from the event,” a statement on the UFC’s official website read.

The bout between Tybura and Rozenstruik was originally slated to go down in February, but was rescheduled for UFC 273 on Saturday. 

Tybura (22-7-0) was looking to bounce back from a unanimous decision loss to Alexander Volkov at UFC 267. Prior to that set back, ‘Tybur’ was on a five fight win streak defeating notable names such as Ben Rothwell, Greg Hardy and Walt Harris.

Like his opponent, Rozenstruik (12-3-0) was looking to get back in the win column. After earning victories in his first four UFC bouts, ‘Bigi Boy’ has alternated wins and losses. Most recently, Rozenstruik suffered a unanimous decision loss to Curtis ‘Razor’ Blaydes at UFC 266 in September. 

UFC 273 airs live from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL. With the loss of one heavyweight affair, the event will move forward with 12 bouts including:

Card subject to change.
