Breaking News: This fight is still on, none of this ever became official ------
Well in a somewhat strange, and shocking move, Pearl Gonzalez has been pulled from her UFC debut at tomorrow night's UFC 210, for a reason we don't hear everyday. The New York State Athletic Commission told Gonzalez today that she could not fight in New York state because of her breast implants, which are banned for all combat sport athletes in New York.
Pearl Gonzalez was set to make her UFC debut against fellow Strawweight Cynthia Calvillo, who made her UFC debut a few weeks ago and made quick work of her opponent, winning via first round submission at UFC 209. This fight was a big one for the Strawweight division, as both of these young women are potentially the future of the division - and possibly the present as well.
We will have to wait and see how this plays out, and so far I have not seen Gonzalez comment on the issue yet, so we will watch for that, and maybe any attempts to salvage the fight.
