Debut fight called off
February 19, 2021
Sabatini will no longer be debuting Saturday as his scheduled fight against Rafael Alves was canceled due to Alves missing weight by 12 pounds, John Morgan of USA Today reports.
Alves' miss was evidently deemed bad enough that the standard remedy of moving forward with the fight but penalizing him a portion of his purse was deemed inappropriate. Sabatini will be hoping to secure a matchup with a new opponent soon, though when that will happen remains to be seen.
Set for UFC debut
February 12, 2021
Sabatini signed a contract with UFC and will face Rafael Alves in a lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night 185 on Feb. 20, Farah Hannoun and John Morgan of USA Today report.
Sabatini won a pair of featherweight championships in the CFFC, but he's now joined UFC and is set for his debut later this month. He'll take the spot of Mike Trizano (knee), who was originally lined up to face Alves before being forced to withdraw due to injury.
