A lawsuit was filed against UFC fighter Ray Borg by Wild Bunch Management, which is owned and operated by Tom Vaughn. Vaughn, who also operates NHB Fit, alleges that Borg is skipping out on the contract with them, while owing back pay for a previous deal negotiated on his behalf with the UFC.
Borg has made a move of his own, which is to file a commission complaint with the New Mexico Regulation & Licensing Department (NMRLD). The complaint filed by Borg says Vaughn has never been licensed as a manager or coach in the state of New Mexico, plus he asserts that there was multiple breaches of the contract signed in 2013 and the fighter assumes bad treatment from the management team.
Ryan Baughman is the lawyer who is representing Vaughn and he sent the following statement to MMA Junkie about the complaint filed by the UFC star:
“Mr. Vaughn is licensed as a cornerman and manager in the State of New Mexico and has never been a part of illegal ‘smoker fights.’ Mr. Vaughn also denies any alleged breeches of contract and that he has ever treated Mr. Borg unfairly.”
The flyweight contender recently celebrated the birth of his first child, who had to overcome serious medical issues before the Borg Family finally brought the baby home. Borg hasn’t competed since UFC 216, where he suffered a submission loss to UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson.
