Ray Borg has made his first public statement since his UFC release.
Last week, the UFC dropped Borg (13-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC), a former flyweight title challenger, after his second straight fight-week withdrawal.
Borg was removed from his bantamweight bout against Nathan Maness at UFC on ESPN+ 31 on the day of the weigh-ins. Reasons for that move were not disclosed by the UFC, but it was the second straight event that Borg missed. At UFC on ESPN 10 in June, Borg was supposed to fight Merab Dvalishvili. But two days before the event, Borg left Las Vegas and returned home for personal reasons.
