Dominick Reyes vs. Carlos Ulberg won't be happening at UFC 297 as planned, according to Reyes.

Reyes posted the announcement on his Instagram Story on Saturday, announcing the injury, which he appears to question.

"Hey Everyone My Fight Jan 20 has been called off due to my opponent’s 'injury'. We are currently looking at options or rescheduling. I’ve had a great camp and I’m def frustrated but god has a plan," he tweeted.

Reyes was looking to bounce back from a string of losses versus Ulberg who is on a five fight win streak.

It's unclear if Reyes will remain on the Jan. 20 card.

Ulberg took to Twitter to call out Reyes after the announcement was made.

"Relax Buddy, you’re not about 'that life' Rest well!!" he tweeted.

Here's how the card stands, at press time.
