Ray Borg Provides Update On Son After Fight Withdrawal

Ray Borg was supposed to face Merab Dvalishvili last night at UFC Fight Night: Eye vs. Calvillo, but he would pull out of the bout and get replaced by Gustavo Lopez.

The fighter indicated through social media that the reason for the withdrawal had to do with his son and now Borg has returned to Twitter to provide a positive update:

“Thank you all so much for the overwhelming love and support. As you all know I pulled from my fight to be with my son. With his condition being lifelong, he is at risk for surgery every day. Although there were some worries about his shunt failing due to some malfunction symptoms, I am happy to let everyone know that he is at home doing well and will not need any surgery. Thank you everyone who had reached out. We love you all.”

Borg’s son, Anthony, was born in 2018 and had been dealing with a serious brain condition, which had led to several surgeries and Borg sometimes being forced to put his professional MMA career on hold.

There is no word yet if Borg will face Dvalishvili upon returning to the Octagon or if the fighters will go their separate ways.
