The UFC Vegas 77 event has lost its scheduled heavyweight bout between Walt Harris and Josh Parisian. The match, originally planned to be held at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas this Saturday, has been cancelled.
Insiders with understanding of the situation confirmed the cancellation to MMA Hook on Wednesday. However, the specific reasons behind the bout’s removal from the card remain undisclosed.
Harris had been hoping to bounce back after a series of three consecutive losses, the latest of which was against Marcin Tybura in June 2021. Harris has been sidelined since that time due to undisclosed circumstances, and it now appears he will have to wait even longer for his comeback to the octagon.
Parisian, a Contender Series veteran, has alternated between victories and losses in his five UFC appearances. A decision defeat to Jamal Pogues in February left his UFC record at 2-3 overall. He had previously featured on Dana White’s Contender Series and The Ultimate Fighter.
Despite the cancellation of the Harris vs. Parisian main card bout on Saturday, UFC officials are yet to announce any alterations to the lineup.
