Demetrious Johnson vs. Ray Borg Cancelled

Demetrious Johnson vs. Ray Borg was due to headline UFC 215 this weekend, but it has now been cancelled with Ray Borg dealing with illness. Ariel Helwani first reported the story.

Johnson was due to defend his UFC flyweight title for the 11th time which, if he was successful, would be a UFC record.

The women’s bantamweight title fight between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko will now headline the card.
