Just in: Two bouts cancelled for UFC 272 after John Morgan tripped over a wire causing him to roll around the arena injuring fighters

Colby Covington is due to face Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272 this upcoming Saturday. The Card main attraction is the feud between the former two friends turned foes. Other than that the card has not been spectacular with Rafael Dos Anjos having his opponent replaced due to Covid.

Today at during the pre-fight interviews multiple fighters that due to compete at UFC 272 did their media obligations. Everything seemed to go as planned where MMA Junkie Reporter John Morgan was also present as usual .As fighters was getting ready to start their interviews most would’ve expected him to have the first question and that was not the case this time.

As many fighters and fans alike are well aware that tradition is not to be messed with because The MMA Gods will not take it likely. As Trent Bumsmith started to ask the first question a very loud noise was heard in the distance and something very big appeared to be coming towards the fighters attending the interviews.

Before the fighters had a chance to see what it was, it was to late. According to our Lead Reporter Brent Welwany who was present at the scene, he had witnessed MMA Junkie Reporter John Morgan tripping over an wire which caused him to fall and roll around the arena injuring multiple fighters which resulted in 2 bouts being at risk of cancellation.

Even though Welwany was devastated of what he just witnessed he was courageous enough to describe the horrific event . With tears in his eyes reveals that the reason why Morgan tripped was due to forgetting to put his belt on which caused his pants to fall down, therefore distracting him of his surroundings which led to him tripping over an wire and falling.

After the incident our Lead reporter reached out to UFC President Dana White for a statement which he had a the following to say:

“ I am just as devastated as all this Goofballs that nearly lost their life tonight. And normally I would of stripped Morgan of his belt because he tripped over an wire but at this time I will have no choice but to get him one so this doesn’t happen again”
