Hyun Gyu Lim’s UFC debut will have to wait for another day. Late Thursday night, the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion announced “The Ace” is medically unfit to fight David Mitchell on Saturday. Although the UFC didn’t elaborate on why Lim was forced to bow out, it is assumed he’s having issues with his weight cut. All the “UFC on FUEL TV: Franklin vs. Le” athletes are slated to tip the scale in five hours from this publication. The trip to China won’t be a complete wash for Mitchell, as he’ll be paid his show purse for making the trek. “After being examined by doctors it was determined that Hyun Gyu Lim was medically unfit to participate in tomorrow’s event and as a precaution, his UFC Macao bout has been canceled. His opponent, David Mitchell, will be paid his show money,” the UFC expressed in a statement. UFC on FUEL TV 6 takes place inside Cotai Arena in Macau. Here is the show’s revised lineup. Preliminary Card: (Facebook 7:30AM ET/4:30AM PT) Tom DeBlass vs. Riki Fukuda John Lineker vs. Yasuhiro ********** Motonobu Tezuka vs. Alex “Bruce Leeroy” Caceres Main Card: (FUEL TV 9AM ET/6AM PT) Takeya Mizugaki vs. Jeff Hougland Jon Tuck vs. Tiequan Zhang Takanori Gomi vs. Mac Danzig Dong Hyun Kim vs. Paulo Thiago Thiago Silva vs. Stanislav Nedkov Cung Le vs. Rich Franklin
