Bobby Green made weight for his UFC 258 fight with Jim Miller – but it now their fight is off.
Green was the last fighter to weigh in Friday morning at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and hit the lightweight limit at 156 pounds. He walked to the scale and stepped on without assistance.
When it came time for the pre-fight faceoffs about 25 minutes later, Green and Miller did not participate. UFC president Dana White explained why during his scrum with reporters.
“Bobby Green just collapsed back there,” White said. “Doctors are looking at him. They’re trying to rehydrate him right now.”
