A on + 15: Andrade vs. Zhang main card bout has been cancelled with less than 24 hours to go until fight time.

Despite having made weight, Lv Zhenghong has been scratched from the on + 15 line-up. Zhenghong apparently suffered a cut during training earlier in the week and it has been deemed unacceptable to allow him to fight on Saturday in Shenzhen, China.

As result of Zhenghong’s removal, his bout with Movsar Evloev has been removed from the on + 15 event. 

Their main card fight has been replaced by Song Kenan vs. Derrick Krantz, which moves up from the preliminary portion of the fight card.

on + 15 is headlined by straight champion Jessica Andrade, who makes the first defense of her belt opposite home country favorite Weili Zhang. If Zhang is successful in upsetting Andrade, she will become China’s first champion.

Because of the distinct difference in time zones between China and the United States, the on + 15: Andrade vs. Zhang prelims are slated to begin at 3 a.m. ET / 12 a.m. (midnight) PT with the main card starting at 6 a.m. ET / 3 a.m. PT.
