Davey Grant has been forced to pull out of his clash against Roland Delorme at UFC Fight Night 37 with a knee injury.

After he and Delorme made weight on Friday, Grant was deemed not fit enough to fight.

"I felt a twinge in my knee after some light training and went for a scan, it revealed a slight tear in my meniscus and the advice was that I shouldn't fight in London tonight," Grant said.

"I am devastated not to be fighting tonight, I was so looking forward to putting on a great show in front of the fans in the O2, but I will be at the arena to show my support to all the British fighters on the card."
