UFC News: Andrew Todhunter passes out during weight cut, fight off UFC 188

Andrew Todhunter, a late replacement fighter who was set to face Albert Tumenov tomorrow night in Mexco City, reportedly passed out in trying to lose weight for today's weigh-ins.

UFC.com's Thomas Gerbasi reported that Todhunter, set to make his UFC debut, was cutting weight when he passed out. Doctors hooked him up to an IV to replenish the lost water weight and it was ruled that due to passing out, he would not be allowed to fight. Todhunter's previous fight was a boxing match on 5/15, where he weighed in at 200 pounds. This was a fight where he needed to get to 171 pounds. Tumenov will receive his show money for tomorrow. 

Because of the timeframe, there will be no replacement and the show will now begin at 7 PM EST on Fight Pass instead of 6:30 PM EST.
