UPDATE: Calvillo vs Gonzalez is back on.
UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez has reportedly been pulled from this weekend's UFC 210 fight card, which would've been her UFC debut, because she has breast implants.
In 2014, the New York State Athletic Commission barred fighters with breast implants from fighting due to fear of rupture and since UFC 210 is being held in Buffalo, New York Gonzalez will be unable to compete.
One has to wonder, they couldn't have figured this out before the day of the weigh-in?
According to the NYSAC medical manual,
"Due to the concern over rupture, boxers who have breast implants are not eligible to box in New York. Boxers who have had breast reduction surgeries are eligible to box."
Gonzalez was scheduled to fight Cynthia Calvillo in her debut this Saturday at UFC10. Calvillo is hopeful that the ruling will be overturned.
UPDATE: The NYSAC has cleared Pearl Gonzalez to fight at UFC 210.

I'm told the Calvillo-Gonzalez has been canceled. Per NYSAC, female fighters are not allowed to have implants, thus ruling out Gonzalez.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) April 7, 2017
Calvillo just told me she is hopeful they will overturn this but no word that's actually happened just yet.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) April 7, 2017
