Nik Lentz never made it to the weigh-ins for UFC 216 on Friday, for a scheduled bout with Will Brooks, and the rugged vet has released a statement outlining why.

On Friday morning, the UFC announced that Lentz had been forced off the card, due to medical issues. But, no additional details were provided. Since then, however, Lentz tweeted out the statement below, which describes the issues he was dealing with.
