UFC 258 has lost a main card fight after a scary scene.

MMA veteran Bobby ‘The King’ Green (27-11-1) made weight this morning but then collapsed backstage, according to UFC president Dana White.

“Bobby Green just collapsed back there,” White told media outlets including Cageside Press during a media scrum. “Doctors are looking at him. They’re trying to rehydrate him right now.”

Green was the last fighter to make the walk for weigh-ins Friday morning at the UFC Apex ahead of UFC 258. He made the lightweight limit at 156 pounds.

Green was supposed to fight fellow veteran Jim Miller (32-15-1). The pair were expected to be the second fight on the pay-per-view. Featherweights Brian Kelleher and Ricky Simon will be taking their place on the main card.

‘The King’ was coming off the best and most active year of his UFC career. He fought four times, winning for three of them. Green defeated Clay Guida, won a rematch against Landa Vannata, and beat a returning Alan Patrick. Most media believed he won the fight against Thiago Moises as well, but the judges didn’t see it that way.

Miller had an active year as well in 2020, fighting three times.

There is no news if Green and Miller will be rescheduled as of now. We wish Green a speedy recovery.
