Raul Rosas Jr. illness cancels UFC Fight Night 237 bout vs. Ricky Turcios moments before walkout

UFC 19-year-old sensation Raul Rosas Jr. will have to wait for his fourth appearance in the promotion after an illness pulled him from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 237 bout vs. Ricky Turcios.

Just moments before Rosas and Turcios were scheduled to make the walk to the cage at Mexico City Arena for their bantamweight bout, it was announced on the broadcast Rosas would not be able to compete.

According to UFC commentator Brendan Fitzgerald, Rosas started showing symptoms early Saturday that indicated he might not be able to fight. He went to the arena and attempted to warm up, but the call finally was made to cancel the fight.

Fitzgerald said UFC officials are attempting to reschedule the matchup for UFC Fight Night 238 next Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, but said that change was unconfirmed so far.
