UFC welterweight fighter Michael Graves has been pulled from his fight with Sergio Moraes at UFC Fight Night 100 after he was involved in a domestic abuse incident at the weekend.
Graves was arrested for misdemeanor battery (family violence) on Saturday and is currently still in custody with his bail set at $5,000.
“The UFC organization is aware that Michael Graves was arrested over the weekend on a misdemeanor battery charge,” a statement from the UFC reads. “The organization takes this situation seriously and is in the process of gathering more information.
Graves has been removed from his scheduled bout on Nov. 19 as a result of the pending legal matter.”
The 25 year-old is currently undefeated in his seven fight MMA career, and has racked up two wins and a draw inside the UFC’s Octagon so far since making his way to the promotion via The Ultimate Fighter Season 21.
