“Bobby Green vs. Jim Miller is off the #UFC258 card tomorrow after Green collapsed backstage following official weigh-ins this morning, per the UFC. Ricky Simon vs. Brian Kelleher moves to the main card,” Raimondi tweeted.
Jim Miller was entering this fight coming off a decision loss to Vinc Pichel at UFC 252. Before that, he submitted Roosevelt Roberts in the first round to get back into the win column after losing a decision to Scott Holtzman. In his legendary career, he also holds notable wins over Clay Guida, Joe Lauzon, and Yancy Medeiros among others.
Bobby Green, meanwhile, was looking to get back into the win column after a split decision loss to Thiago Moises. Although losing out on the fight is disappointing, his health is no doubt the priority right now, and hopefully, the UFC can rebook the fight for a later date.
As Raimondi mentioned, the UFC has now promoted a Ricky Simon vs Brian Kelleher to the main card. The fight is a very intriguing one between two bantamweights fighting at featherweight on short notice.
With the removal of Jim Miller vs. Bobby Green, UFC 258 is now as follows.
- Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns
- Maycee Barber vs. Alexa Grasso
- Kelvin Gastelum vs. Ian Heinisch
- Ricky Simon vs. Brian Kelleher
- Julian Marquez vs. Maki Pitolo
- Rodolfo Vieira vs. Anthony Hernandez
- Polyana Viana vs. Mallory Martin
- Andre Ewell vs. Chris Gutierrez
- Gabe Green vs. Philip Rowe
- Gillian Robertson vs. Miranda Maverick
