Raul Rosas Jr. Ill, UFC Fight Night 237 Match Against Ricky Turcios Canceled

Oh, snap! The much-anticipated face-off between Raul Rosas Jr. and Ricky Turcios? Yeah, it’s off the table for tonight. A nasty bug got the best of Rosas. #UFCMexico [pic link]

UFC’s tweet on February 25, 2024, dropped the bomb. Just when we were all revved up for the clash.

So, here’s the skinny. Raul Rosas Jr. versus Ricky Turcios was supposed to be the highlight of UFC Fight Night 237. But, nope. Fate had other plans.

Turns out, Rosas Jr. caught something nasty. Despite gearing up to step into the Octagon, the poor guy just couldn’t. At 19, he’s the youngest gladiator in the arena, and this was a bummer for him, no doubt.

But hey, don’t toss your popcorn just yet. The UFC’s got plans. They’re eyeing UFC Fight Night 238 on March 2 at the UFC Apex in Vegas for the reschedule. Fingers crossed, folks.

Rosas, the young gun, was riding high on a first-round TKO victory over Terrence Mitchell last September. Turcios, on the other hand, snagged a split-decision win against Kevin Natividad. His UFC journey’s been a rollercoaster since 2021, with a 2-1 score.

So, yeah. Disappointment in the air, but the anticipation? It’s only getting thicker. Let’s hope the stars align for these two warriors in Vegas.
