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.

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.
