Ray Borg Issues Statement On Eye Injury

MMA

Ray Borg was days away from facing Brandon Moreno on the preliminary card of UFC 223, but then former UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and his entourage would attack a bus full of fighters, a bus that Borg was in.

The flyweight contender would suffer an eye injury as a result of the actions from the former champion, as glass shards from the bus’ windows would get in his eyes.

Borg has apparently been facing a lot of negative reactions from “keyboard warriors” and Borg has decided to fight back and did so through a Twitter post:

 

Here is what Borg wrote on the note pictured on the Twitter post:

“For the key board gangsters that think this is a cop out and for some reason think glasses make you invincible. I have mouths to feed and had a baby on the way leading up to this fight. I also extended this fight in agreement to fight Moreno at a later date due to his injury putting my family at more of a distress. I do not know why you think I can tell the future and think I planned this all out to “make money” off Conor I came into this sport to make money off of winning fights and after being medically examined by 2 doctors I was deemed unfit to compete so hey what do you know food was taken off my families plate for something out of my control. And those who think it was a weight thing…. lol ask my guy who works for the Pi, I was 129 when I was taken to the hospital 3 pounds away from my weight nearly 24 hours from weigh ins also for those that say I was in the embedded video, you literally saw me for 4 seconds. So here is my medical report.”

Moreno and Borg are expected to hold their bout at a later date, but that time has yet to be announced by the UFC or the fighters.
