UFC president Dana White said skirmishes had started between Chimaev and Kevin Holland before the event was canceled, but White said none of the fighters needed medical attention.

Diaz will be in action on September 10 when he takes on Chimaev, but he has recently insisted that he is doing the organization a favor by taking on the fight.
