Raul Rosas Jr. vs. Ricky Turcios won't go down at UFC Fight Night 238


Raul Rosas Jr. vs. Ricky Turcios won’t be going down this weekend.

Although never officially booked, Rosas vs. Turcios was expected to go down this Saturday at UFC Fight Night 238 in Las Vegas, following the last-minute cancellation of their bout at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 237 in Mexico City, Mexico.

UFC officials revealed the news to MMA Junkie on Tuesday evening. It’s uncertain if the UFC will keep the matchup and re-book for a later date or scrap it all together.

Minutes from walking out to the octagon at UFC Fight Night 237, Rosas (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) pulled out from the fight against Turcios (12-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC), as he felt ill and unfit to compete. UFC CEO Dana White said after the event that the promotion would try to re-book the matchup for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 238.
