I guess “Mighty Mouse” won’t be getting that UFC 215 paycheck after all.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced earlier today (Wed., Sept 13, 2107) that the Demetrious Johnson vs Ray Borg Flyweight title fight has been rescheduled to go down at UFC 216 on Oct. 7, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Combate was the first to report the news.

The bout was originally set to go down last weekend (Sat., Sept. 9, 2017) at UFC 215 but was scratched just a couple days before fight night after Borg fell ill. As a result, the women’s Bantamweight title fight between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko was bumped up to headlining act.

Borg issued this statement regarding his withdrawal, citing that UFC doctors were the ones who ultimately made the tough call.
