Johnson's title defense at UFC 215 would have been his 11 consecutive, putting him in position to break Silva's record for most defenses.

Though the card will take place as scheduled, full refunds are being offered to ticket holders. Just in the past few months we've lost Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 209, Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 213, and now Demetrious Johnson vs.

"It wasn't weight related", Borg's nutritionist told MMA Fighting.

On Saturday night, UFC flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson was looking to make history by earning his 11th title defense against Ray Borg.

A lingering illness for Ray Borg has scrapped the UFC 215 main event.

Lara was quoted as saying, "I grew up at a time when West Indies dominated the world. England and the West Indies clash in the third and final test at Lords.

Borg's illness simultaneously redeems and thwarts UFC President Dana White, who was met by resistance from Johnson over White's interest in assigning the champion a more stringent test for the record against former bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw - the former Cal State Fullerton wrestler now awaiting a November 4 title shot at bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt.

The Rogers Place card will now be headlined by women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and No. 1 contender Valentina Shevchenko. "Ray has been getting progressively more sick each day this week and still wanted to fight so badly that he put on his game face and went to all of his fight week obligations".

This would have been record breaking if Johnson won the fight this Saturday.

UFC 200 - Conor McGregor was removed from his second fight with Nate Diaz from skipping a presser. Moving to the Pay-Per-View main card will be the flyweight bout between Henry Cejudo and Wilson Reis. Additionally, lightweights Mitch Clarke and Alex White will kick off the preliminary card. The 29-year-old has six career wins by submission, but went the distance in her four previous bouts, including a unanimous decision win over Holly Holm as a +175 underdog at UFC on Fox 20 in her only fight to go beyond three rounds.
