Vitor Belfort vs. Uriah Hall scratched from UFC St. Louis
Vitor Belfort’s retirement fight will have to wait. Belfort’s expected co-main event bout against Uriah Hall has been scratched from the UFC St. Louis card. UFC officials announced the news immediately following Saturday’s weigh-ins. Hall did not weigh-in. Belfort tipped the scales at 186 pounds. UFC officials did not elaborate on the reason for Hall’s withdrawal. A featherweight bout between St. Louis-native Michael Johnson and Darren Elkins has been promoted from the televised preliminaries to the main card, while a women’s flyweight bout between Paige VanZant and Jessica-Rose Clark will now serve as the show’s co-main event.

What UFC's Russia event means for Khabib Nurmagomedov, lightweight title picture
RT Sport recently reported, citing venue officials, that the UFC has booked Moscow’s Olympic Stadium for Sept. 14 and 15 to bring an event to Russia for the first time. If that happens, there’s no doubt the plan would be to have Khabib Nurmagomedov, a bona fide star in his home country, included on the card. There’s also talk of UFC 223 coming to Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on April 7. Although nothing is official, a person with knowledge of the situation has told MMAjunkie that is the plan. This matters to Nurmagomedov’s more immediate future, because Brooklyn’s large Russian population and the promotion’s desire to bring a major headliner to the Big Apple make UFC 223 perfect for his next booking.
