UFC 215 Flyweight Title Fight Canceled, Ray Borg Out

UFC 215 Flyweight Title Fight Canceled, Ray Borg Out

Nowadays there seems to be a new frightful trend of main event fights getting called off last minute due to illness.

Johnson-Borg is the second significant bout that fell off UFC 215.

On Saturday night, UFC flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson was looking to make history by earning his 11th title defense against Ray Borg. The UFC issued a statement saying he was "deemed unfit to compete by the UFC medical team".

'However, prior to beginning the bulk of his weight cut the UFC doctor examined Borg and concluded that he was too ill to fight this week and needed time to rest and get better'.

Johnson came into the fight with ten straight title defenses, tying the all-time UFC record held originally by Anderson Silva.

Ex-Charles Manson Follower Leslie Van Houten Recommended For Parole
She was part of the group that entered the LaBiancas' home, and she held Rosemary down while Charles "Tex" Watson stabbed Leno . Members of both the Tate and La Bianca families have argued against parole for Van Houten, or for any Manson follower.

The fight will be rescheduled as soon as possible, MMAFighting.com reported.

The show will remain a PPV with a main event of women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes vs. Valentina Shevchenko II.

Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos lost his title to Eddie Alvarez a year ago, then followed that up with a loss to lightweight contender Tony Ferguson. "He's my boss. I'm not going to fight with the person who's feeding me".

Five other fighters you'll want to watch at UFC 215. Johnson will still have a chance to break the record, although he would have to wait for when the fight is rebooked.

UFC said moving to the pay-per-view main card will be the flyweight bout between Henry Cejudo and Wilson Reis.
