The UFC 278 fight card will see another major change in less than a week.

The flyweight match between Shanna Young and Miranda Maverick was canceled this morning

Because "The Shanimal" was hospitalized with weight loss complications,

This leaves the Maverick no opponent for this Saturday.

His 125-pound scrap was earmarked for an ABC/ESPN/ESPN+ "Prelims" card.

Maverick wrote on Instagram, "Shanna Young is in hospital with illness

And I wish him a full and speedy recovery.

We were prepared, super prepared and so much better for this camp.

I had already lost weight (within a pound to swim until morning).

I still watch some really good fights on Saturdays

And looking forward to getting back in the cage as soon as possible.

Thanks to my team for the support that helped me

And invested in the people who came forward for this fight."
