Former UFC flyweight contender Ray Borg has left the organization’s roster after retiring for the second time in a row before the event.
The news came a week after the Borg for an unknown reason dropped out of a fight against Nate Maniss on the day of weigh-in before UFC Fight Night 173. In June, the fighter was supposed to fight Merab Dvalishvili, but two days before UFC on ESPN 10 duel, returning home due to the illness of a two-year-old son suffering from hydrocephalus.
27-year-old Ray Borg, who has played in the UFC since 2014, fought 12 fights under the banner of the organization, scoring 7 wins and suffering 5 losses. In October 2017, Borg made an unsuccessful attempt to take the flyweight title from Demetrius Johnson, losing to Mighty Mouse by an elbow lever in the fifth round.
