Ottman Azaitar had been set to fight Matt Frevola on the main card of UFC 257 tonight, but now he has been fired from the promotion after a jaw-dropping story emerged of he and his team conspiring to smuggle in an unauthorized person into the carefully contained Fight Island 'bubble'.
A UFC press release said the bout was cut for a health and safety violation. The UFC's success is due to the rigorous self-imposed protocols put in place that focus on the health and safety of the fighters, their teams, and everyone else involved in a UFC event. And then changed his clothes and went back outside of the bubble.
White told another reporter that the UFC captured "everything on camera" and wasted no time in 'pulling Azaitar's fight'.

Dana White has said that Ottman Azaitar was cut from the UFC for allegedly trying to bring an unauthorised guest into the promotion's "Fight Island" bubble. "When security tried to stop him, he wouldn't stop".
The bout between Azaitar (13-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Matt Frevola (8-1-1 MMA, 2-1-1 UFC) was scratched from the card early Friday after the official weigh-ins, but no reason was given. "That guy taped them, showed up here with a bag, went into a room, shimmied across four balconies, went in his room, dropped the bag off, changed his clothes, and then left". He was making his third UFC appearance since coming to the company from Brave CF in September 2019.

As first reported by Farrah Hannoun of MMA Junkie, Azaitar and his team made the grievous and risky mistake of attempting to sneak people into the Fight Island bubble by removing their own wristbands and giving them to others outside the bubble.
