Terry Martin Not Cleared to Compete at SCC 4, Fight with Jesse Taylor Canceled


Terry Martin and Marvin Eastman at UFC 81
Thursday night’s Superior Cage Combat show in Las Vegas has lost one of it’s main bouts less than 24 hours before the show.

A fight between former UFC and Strikeforce veteran Terry Martin and former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor Jesse Taylor will no longer take place on the card.

According to Keith Kizer, Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, when speaking to MMAWeekly.com on late Wednesday night confirmed that Martin ‘did not get cleared to compete.’

Unfortunately no further details were available.

Sources have indicated to MMAWeekly.com that his opponent Jesse Taylor will be paid his show and win money from the bout however from Superior Cage Combat, and he has been promised a slot on a future show with the promotion.

Superior Cage Combat 4 takes place on Thursday at the Orleans in Las Vegas with former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ winner Kendall Grove taking on Jay Silva in the main event.
