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.
