Ray Borg just can’t catch a break.

Undisclosed medical issues have ruled Borg out of a flyweight bout with Joseph Benavidez at UFC Fight Night 139, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person asked to remain anonymous because the news is not yet public.

The promotion will not replace Borg, and the final bout card order is being reshuffled as of this writing.

That sucks. I am sure it's scrapped because the division is being dissolved. I'm sure they'll all get picked up by ONE.

That depresses me. Rogan was talking about them adding a 170 division. That doesn't make any sense to me if they're getting rid of divisions.

I get it, eliminate your least successful division. No one wants to see 5ft tall male athletes unless they're riding horse. They have more fighters in the WW and LW division than the entirety of the other weight classes combined. Eliminate 125 and 170, and create 165 and 175. That let's you get rid of your dead weight, add 2 new weight classes (hence 2 new champions), and redistribute the current log jam at 155 and 170. It's a great idea.
