Female fighter has UFC 210 debut canceled for having breast implants

Pearl Gonzalez was scheduled to make her UFC debut at tomorrow's UFC 210 event in Buffalo, New York, but due to an odd New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) rule, she was pulled from the fight card.

MMA has only been legal in the state of  New York for a year now, so unique rules like these are still very foreign to promoters.

The fight stood to be a showcase for the talented Gonzalez and now it seems as though her much-anticipated debut will have to wait.

There's no word on if the UFC or other MMA promotions will petition this rule in the future, but  there are plenty of other states, such as Nevada, that'll gladly let all women participate.

UPDATE

Pearl Gonzalez has been cleared to fight after the UFC's conversations with the NYSAC.
