Ray Borg Released By UFC
After Corey Anderson, UFC released Ray Borg on the same day. Borg’s last UFC in-ring action came in March, 2020, and after that he missed out on a couple of events. He was set to compete against Nathan Maness at UFC Vegas 5, but after the weigh-ins he was removed from his bout. No official statement came from the UFC’s side over the reason for his eviction from the fight. A week later, now he is released by UFC, and is open to look out for other promotions.
In the past Borg has suffered a setback on the personal front, his son in 2018 got diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a brain condition. Since then he has kept his family’s interests above in the pecking order.
