Former flyweight title challenger Ray Borg is no longer a UFC fighter.
Borg (13-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC) has consecutively pulled out of UFC fights, most recently from his UFC on ESPN+ 31 fight.
UFC officials on Friday confirmed to MMA Fighting Borg’s release from contract after his withdrawal from UFC Vegas 5 earlier this month. When he was scheduled to face Nate Maness. Before he pulled from the fight due to undisclosed reasons.
It was his second straight withdrawal after his son’s health prompted him to bow out of a fight against Merab Dvalishvili at UFC on ESPN 10 just earlier on in the year.
Borg leaves the promotion with a 7-5 record inside the octagon. He owns wins over flyweight standouts Jussier Formiga and Louis Smolka and nearly went the distance with dominant then champ Demetrious Johnson before tapping to the highlight reel fifth-round armbar.
Nonetheless he fought some of the best flyweights in the world and holds wins over some of the best in 125 pounders and 135.
The 27-year-old MMA vet has failed to maintain stability amid a string of troubles outside the cage. He’s always had trouble making weight at the scales. Coming in heavy on three occasions as a flyweight and once as a bantamweight.
After a miss at 125 pounds in February, he was ordered back to bantamweight. When he lost a split decision to Ricky Simon in his most recent outing at UFC Jacksonville.
Now, Ray Borg is no longer part of the UFC roster.
A former UFC tittle challenger to now a former UFC fighter.
