MMAWeekly’s Ken Pishna reported earlier today that Tra Telligman was at the doctors office trying to be medicially cleared to fight Saturday night.
Tra would not disclose what the injury was, but just said he has to get medically cleared. Tra told MMAWeekly’s Ken Pishna “I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but I still believe that I will be able to fight.” More news coming…
MMAWeekly’s Ken Pishna reports that Telligman didn’t complete his medicals before arriving in Vegas. He’s not injured, he just didn’t complete the required tests to be cleared to fight in Nevada.
It’s still unclear if Tra will be medically cleared to compete this Saturday. MMAWeekly has learned that if Telligman can’t be cleared the fight will be scratched from the card. The UFC did contact several fighters to step in on short notice, but all turned the fight down.
