Just caught this over on cagepotato while i was browsing around my usual mma websites for news:

Just hours before the curtains are set to come up on the UFC’s debut show in the United Arab Emirates, CagePotato.com has learned that the preliminary bout between Paul Taylor and John Gunderson has been pulled from the fight card because Taylor has been deemed medically unfit to compete. According to sources at the event, Taylor's removal from the card is due to health complications resulting from his weight cut.

Was looking forward to seeing him fight again since his defeat to John.

Yeah I saw this on CP as well and it bummed me out. My only thoughts are that he must be so dehydrated that he cant do anything. If you dont cut weight right it can realy mess you up!
