The PFL heavyweight division has taken a hit going into the second half of the regular season.
Werdum (24-9-1), who was supposed to fight Brandon Sayles, was not medically cleared to compete, according to promotion officials. Usman (7-2), meanwhile, suffered an injury in training that will prevent him from making it to the cage for his planned matchup with Denis Goltsov.
