The pay-per-view (PPV) main card bout between Bobby Green and Jim Miller, scheduled for tomorrow night (Sat., Feb. 13, 2021) inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been canceled after “King” collapsed just minutes after weighing in for UFC 258.

That’s according to UFC President Dana White, who updated the combat sports media during his weigh-ins scrum backstage. No Green also means no Miller, since it’s too late to secure a replacement, but that decision is up to the attending physician.

Watch “King” take the scale in this video.

Green (27-11-1) crossed over from Strikeforce in early 2013 but has struggled to stay consistent in the crowded 155-pound weight class. He was last seen dropping a unanimous decision nod to Thiago Moises at UFC Vegas 12.

Let’s hope that Green is okay.

As for Miller (32-15, 1 NC), he’s coming off a unanimous decision loss to Vinc Pichel at UFC 252 last August. “A-10” has been competing for the promotion for more than 12 years and at age 37, we may be nearing the end for the New Jersey native, at least in terms of his MMA career.
