UFC 215 Main Event Canceled, UFC and Ray Borg Speak Out

The planned main event for UFC 215 between current UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson and Number One Contender Ray Borg has been canceled due to Borg having to pull out of the fight because of illness. UFC doctors reportedly wouldn't clear Borg to compete.

Borg gave the following statement to MMA Weekly:

“First, I want to say I’m sorry to the fans and to Demetrious Johnson for being unable to fight. I want to say thank you to Dr. Davidson, the UFC and to Jeff Novitsky for looking out for my health and best interests.

“I also want to add that I am no longer working with Perfecting Athletes and Michelle Ingels, who was not authorized to speak on my behalf.”

The Ultimate Fighting Championship issued the following statement of their own:

Due to a viral illness to UFC flyweight contender Ray Borg, the main event bout against champion Demetrious Johnson at UFC 215 has been canceled. Borg was deemed unfit to compete by the UFC medical team.

UFC 215, which is now headlined by the women’s bantamweight championship between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko, will proceed as scheduled with 11 bouts at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Canada. Moving to the Pay-Per-View main card will be the flyweight bout between Henry Cejudo and Wilson Reis. Additionally, the Mitch Clarke and Alex White lightweight contest will now kick off the FS1 prelims.

With the removal of Johnson vs. Borg, customers may request a full refund of purchased tickets at point of sale.”
