We reported on Monday evening that a UFC light heavyweight bout between Jimi Manuwa and Przemysław Mysiala was in the works for UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland.

Our sources have since updated us saying Mysiala was denied a release from his contract with ACB this morning.

Mysiala competed under the ACB banner for the first time back in July when he defeated Wallyson Carvalho via first round TKO. 

The Pole has attempted to get a contract release from the Russian organisation, but failed to do so.

There is no update on the situation of Jimi Manuwa for the card on October 21.
