UFC Utica had its fair share of controversy due to the Jodie Esquibel vs. Jessica Aguilar fight cancellation. The New York State Athletic Commission apparently cancelled the bout due to the chapped lips of Aguilar.

A lot of debates were sparked as a result and now, Aguilar has opened up about the incident. She explained her side of the story via Instagram and had the following to say.

“Hey guys! Here’s a little update on the BS that went down today right before my fight. I am super disappointed and heartbroken, this is the second fight in a row canceled. I want to clear things up. The commission had a concern regarding my lips and my use of chapstick during the physical exam prior to weigh-ins so they requested that I be cleared by a dermatologist. So right after weigh-ins the commission rush me to get clearance which I was granted by the dermatologist. But tonight, at the arena, the commission struck again and canceled the fight. You can’t reason with this commission, it kinda felt personal. I am hopeful the @UFC will rebook our fight ASAP.”

Aguilar, who currently holds a record of 19-6 to her name is still in search for her first UFC win.
