UFC 210: Dana White insists female fighter Pearl Gonzalez’s debut bout goes ahead despite breast implants

American is due to fight Cynthia Calvillo on the main card of UFC 210

UFC insist Pearl Gonzalez’s debut fight with Cynthia Calvillo on Saturday night is on despite her breast implants posing a medical risk.

The American is due to make her debut on Saturday on the main card of UFC 210 in Buffalo, New York.

But, after Gonzalez had her weigh-in where she sneaked just under the 115.9-pound limit, it was revealed that she had previous surgery to enhance her breasts.

Boxing rules state: “Due to the concern over rupture, boxers who have breast implants are not eligible to box in New York.

“Women who have had breast reduction surgery are, however, eligible to compete.”

However it seems the MMA rules differ and boss Dana White has Tweeted emphatically to insist the bout goes ahead.

He wrote: “STOP listening to web sites and whoever. If u don’t hear it from us it’s probably not true. THIS FIGHT IS ON!!!!
