A defeated Borg also missed weight for the fight by 1.75 pounds, but Borg is now promising to leave MMA forever if he comes in overweight again.
Borg made that promise via Instagram:
“Since arriving home after last fight I have made some drastic changes to my lifestyle habits. I use (sic) to be very Careless with my diet and stopped spending time in the gym in between fights, which turned fight camps more into weight cut camps. I have taken my career to a whole new level mentally and have started taking the steps to go from dieting/fight camps to lifestyle. With this lifestyle change I believe that the world will finally see my true talent and potential. I also want it to go on record that if I ever miss weight again or miss a fight due to anything other than a serious injury I will leave the sport of mma forever. I’m coming back better than ever.”
There is no word at this time as to when Borg will fight again, but the former flyweight title challenger hasn’t picked up a win in over two years.
