Ray borg missed weight for the fourth time in his UFC career yesterday, but despite having vowed to retire if he ever tipped the scales heavy again, he’s vowed to keep on fighting.
“Wish I had an excuse but I don’t, my camp knows that this is the most disciplined I have ever been during camp, weight was good all camp and all week,” Borg wrote on Instagram. “I stayed in contact with the crew at the UFC PI all week and followed all their protocols. The more we started cutting the less that started to come off, we were dedicated to making the weight and took the extra hour they gave us and did what we could with it. We asked for more time with all the intentions in the world to make the weight but unfortunately they only allowed us an hour.
“We still have a fight to win tomorrow and all my focus is on that, I was so confident in my ability to make weight that I even vowed to retire if I missed weight again, which is a subject that currently is not on my mind at the moment . I will put on a good show for my home town tomorrow night, thank you to my team for all the help along with my manager and the rest of my crew that was apart of this camp.
“Sorry to my opponent and his Team for the unprofessionalism and hope to put on a good show tomorrow.”
Borg is still only 26-years-old so retirement talk definitely seemed premature, but his weight cutting issues is certainly a major issue that has to be overcome as not only has he missed the mark three times now at flyweight, but also once last year at bantamweight too.
