No reason was given for the withdrawal.
Alves was looking for his second win in a row after an impressive outing in his last fight where he handed Patrick Cote a unanimous decision loss in April. That fight marked his return to the welterweight division after a spell at lightweight. Prelims will be shown on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. He's a unsafe fight for anyone in the 170lb division, and the UFC may be hard pressed to find a short notice replacement to throw down with him. The main card will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.
Speaking of winning streaks, Gillespie will put his undefeated 9-0 record on the line and shared with us how he went from a guy who didn't want to fight to fighting in MMA and participating in UFC Pittsburgh, Fight Night 116.
