With only a couple of days until the UFC Denver card, something tragic was bound to happen. Right? Well, wish granted. When the UFC hour is late, terrible things happen and the Denver card is no exception. It’s been reported the Ray Borg vs Joseph Benavidez have been scrapped from the card.
Thomas Gerbasi on UFC.com reports,
“Due to medical issues, Ray Borg has been forced out of his Saturday bout with Joseph Benavidez. There will be no replacement bout and the card will proceed with 12 fights.
UFC Fight Night, which is headlined by the featherweight bout between Chan Sung Jung and Yair Rodriguez, airs live on FS1 from Pepsi Center in Denver.”
This is just another blow to Borg, as he’s been slated for 3 UFC fights in 2018 and all 3 have been cancelled.
