Saturday fight called off

Arroyo will not fight Tom Breese Saturday after Breese pulled out of the fight for undisclosed reasons, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports.

Fighting Breese in June

Arroyo (9-4-0) will fight Tom Breese (12-3-0) at a UFC event on June 5, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Arroyo last stepped into the Octagon in December and was handed a loss to Deron Winn via unanimous decision after a layoff of over a year in between fights. The 31-year-old typically wastes little time when fighting, as a majority of his victories have come in Round 1. On paper, this bout appears to be pretty even with both fighters lining up at 6-3 and having a reach of 73 inches.
Struggles following long layoff
MiddleweightUFC
December 19, 2020
Arroyo lost to Deron Winn via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fighting for the first time in more than 13 months, Arroyo's poor takedown defense was ultimately his undoing. While the Brazilian remained competitive, he also allowed Winn to land 8-of-12 takedown attempts and in the end, that was simply too much to overcome in the eyes of the judges. Arroyo is a fairly effective striker who has displayed the ability to mix in a submission here and there, but he has now lost each of his first two UFC bouts and is without a victory dating back to July 2018. With jobs at a premium these days, there is no guarantee the 31-year-old Arroyo gets a third opportunity with the company.
