MMA: Borg reschedules bout; Jones’ win is vacated

Albuquerque MMA fighter Ray Borg’s UFC flyweight title fight against champion Demetrious Johnson has been rescheduled for Oct. 7 in Las Vegas, Nev., Borg posted on social media.

Borg was to have fought Johnson last Saturday in Edmonton, Alberta, but the Jackson-Wink fighter was forced to withdraw because of illness.

JONES: The result of Jackson-Wink fighter Jon Jones’ July 29 UFC light heavyweight title fight against Daniel Cormier has been changed from a Jones victory to no contest, it was announced, after the “B” sample of a urine specimen provided by Jones the previous day tested positive  — as did the “A” sample earlier — for an anabolic steroid. Cormier had been reinstated as UFC light heavyweight champion.
