Fishgold announced he has been forced out of his UFC on ESPN 7
matchup on a now-expired Instagram story that was captured by
MMAjunkie.com earlier this week.
“Unfortunately, I won’t be fighting on UFC Washington next week.
Fingers crossed [I’ll] be back fighting soon,” Fishgold wrote.
Fishgold is 1-2 inside the Octagon, with a TKO loss to Calvin
Kattar and a submission loss to Makwan
Amirkhani sandwiched around a submission triumph over Daniel
Teymur. The former Cage Warriors lightweight champion did not
give a reason as to why he he had to pull out of his bout.
Quarantillo, meanwhile, is on a five-fight winning streak and
earned a Ultimate Fighting Championship contract after a TKO win
Kirk on the Contender Series this summer. It is unclear if
Quarantillo will remain on the card.
