UFC Sao Paulo just lost a highly interesting fight after an injury forced featherweight prospect David “Silent Assassin” Onama to pull out.

“My health comes first and I hope to be back in the octagon next year,” Onama commented on the withdrawal.

His opponent Lucas Alexander announced Tuesday that he’s not getting a replacement for the prelims fight.
