Breast Ban? UFC Fight in Limbo Over Breast Implants

Breast Ban? UFC Fight in Limbo Over Breast Implants

She was initially pulled from the UFC 210 card for having breast implants, but was later reinstated to fight.

According to reports published by ESPN, CBS Sports and several other outlets, the New York State Athletic Commission had informed Gonzalaz about her alleged disqualification on Friday, after the fighter had successfully weighed in for her 115-pound fight.

The UFC has not officially cancelled the bout as they reportedly attempt to sort out the situation.

Neither Gonzalez, the UFC or the NYSAC have issued a comment on the matter.

"STOP listening to web sites and whoever", White tweeted Friday. That's a significant accomplishment for a young career, but her opponent managed to inadvertently drum up some intrigue as well. The UFC can easily rebook Calvillo for another card.

The last win for Calvillo (4-0) came last month against Amanda Cooper at UFC 209.

Before her scheduled UFC bout, Gonzalez had previously won five of her six professional victories by way of stoppage, including four by submission.

What is an a cappella diva "riff-off"? "Wow, that was terrible, just really awful, bad", she fired back. Arguing his point, the funnyman said: "They didn't have Instagram - they just had sass, voice, songs".

Both fighters do not touch gloves as the opening bell sounded.

Gonzalez actually threw punches to start the second round, which seemed a wise choice.

"I was a little appalled and I said 'OK, can I talk to my team?' and the commissioner said 'Yes, ' and I walked out of the room, and that was that", she said. Per NYSAC, female fighters are not allowed to have implants, thus ruling out Gonzalez. Gonzalez showed a lot of patience and very good defense as she waited for Calvillo to punch herself out. Gonzalez was landing some decent shots regardless, at least until Calvillo caught a low kick and converted it into a quick takedown. She goes for the rear-naked choke, but Gonzalez defends that for now.

So, in anticipation of her big fight, we collected some photos from her Instagram account, which you can see in full here. She has a deep armbar but the elbow is turned and Calvillo escapes into side control. Her matchup with Calvillo, who also made weight, was anticipated considering their aggressive styles.

"I'm always expecting the finish", Calvillo said. Calvillo is winning the scrambles and now she takes the back and is going for a choke. "I'm not going to dwell on this".
