From what I've read, Shamar Bailey withdrew from the fight as he refused to show up to the arena. No other details were given as to why he refused to show up.
Shamar Tweeted that Mach was struggling to make weight and they agreed to a catch weight, but again Mach failed to make it and the fight was off. No announcements were made of this and a last minute opponent for Mach replacement was made on fight day.
In the end it didn't matter because Mach still got KO'd by Korean Jae Suk Lim.
No idea why the European fighters who were fighting Yuki Niimura and Yuki Okano didn't fight either.
What's even stranger is that Niimura ended up fighting an unknown fighter named Omar Darvish who there's no background info available of and he's not even affiliated to any gym.
Also Okano ended up fighting Daryl Lokuku who fights regularly at lightweight in DEEP, but who probably walks around at 170 lbs or higher because he's missed weight on DEEP cards in the past, so that's not much of a stretch. Plus Daryl fights and trains in Japan, so he should've been prepared and rested.

Why does Mach still try? He's so lazy these days it's a joke.

Official Weigh in Results:
I weighed in at 76.5 kg for the agreed upon weight of 77.1 kg.
(169 lbs) My opponent weighed in at 78.8 (176 lbs). We agreed upon catch weight of 78 kg (172 lbs) and he could not make that either.#FeelingFrustrated
The thing about doing what's right & holding others to that standard is, no matter how much others try to spin it or slander your name, what's right always prevails. Whether you're on the other side of the globe or in your backyard:) I'm confident in my decision this weekend, and life goes on.

I'm also curious as to why the European fighters didn't make it to their fights. I wish there was a way to contact them and ask them what happened.
