Amanda Nunes, the women's bantamweight champion in UFC, was hospitalized with an undisclosed illness Saturday, and her title fight against Valentina Shevchenko that was scheduled to headline UFC 213 on Saturday has been canceled, according to MMA Junkie.

Nunes won the bantamweight title in July of 2016 by defeating Meisha Tate and then defended the title for the first time against Ronda Rousey in December. The fight between Nunes and Shevchenko was going to be the first bantamweight title fight since 2011 that did not feature either Rousey or Tate.

With the Nunes vs. Shevchenko bout canceled, the fight for the interim middleweight belt between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker has been moved to the main event, according to MMA Junkie.

UFC 213 will take place from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday and can be seen on pay-per-view.

Mayweather-McGregor fight is reportedly seeking a $10 million title sponsor .
Boxer Floyd Mayweather and non-boxer Conor McGregor announced earlier this year that they will square off in the right on August 26, in a fight that promises to net both fighters massive paydays. The sponsorship asking price confirms that.
