UFC 301 | UFC pulls Gomis from the event due to health problems


Gomis informed the French LaSueur that he had changed something during his weight loss because he had lost too much weight. Just before the weigh-in he vomited. Gomis weighed 143 pounds at the weigh-in with clothes on. Weighing with clothes on is highly unusual. The weight limit for Gomis was 146 pounds, which made it extra remarkable.


Gomis could barely keep his balance on the scale and refused to pose for the UFC photographer after staggering off the scale. Gomis then had to be removed from the stage under the supervision of security.

It is now known that the UFC has removed a severely dehydrated Gomis from the event. A downer for the Frenchman, but also for opponent Silva who will now also not fight during UFC 301. Gomis has announced that everything else is going well with him and he is looking forward to fighting again soon.
