After a host of cancelled fights and opponent changes, former UFC flyweight title challenger Ray Borg finally returned to the cage at UFC Philadelphia on Saturday night.
Borg, whose young son has been battling serious health issues, badly needed a victory in Philly. Unfortunately for him, Kenny wound up winning a controversial split decision.
Unsurprisingly, Ray Borg was deeply disappointed with the outcome of this fight, particularly because he needed his win bonus to help cope with the financial strains associated with his son’s illness.
The former flyweight title challenger gave his take on this controversial UFC Philadelphia loss on Instagram shortly after the fight.
“Words can’t explain my emotions right now, I am not a biased man and I can admit when I’m wrong but I am at a loss for words on how i lost that fight. I left it all out there for my boy and got hosed. Anyone who has followed my story knows my family needed this and it hurts to know it was taken from me. There was no issues with the weight but there was some outside variables on the night before weigh ins that will soon come out for your better understanding. But no excuses I gave it my all and I thank you all for the love and support, you all mean the world me. Thank you for the support.” – Ray Borg on Instagram
