Ray Borg is back in action for the first time in over a year at UFC Fight Night Philadelphia, facing Casey Kenney in a flyweight division affair.
The fighter’s son has gone through a series of life threatening health issues in the last year-plus, which has also lead to a change in Borg as a person.
“At the point I’m in my life, I don’t give a damn any more,” Borg told MMA Junkie. “But going through what I’ve gone through in the last year, and seeing what my son has been through, that (expletive) changes you, to where I don’t give a damn what happens on Saturday night. I’m in there to kill someone. I’m at the point in my life where I don’t care what happens on Saturday night. If I get dropped or wobbled, whatever, you’ll be damn sure I’ve left everything in there.”
Anthony Borg, who is Ray’s son, recently celebrated his first birthday and has already survived a total of twelve brain surgeries.
After a year-plus away from the Octagon, one thing Borg considers UFC Fight Night Philadelphia to be is a fresh start.
“I’m considering this weekend a fresh start,” he said. “I have no spot or place to really worry about. My only worry is winning this fight and going back home.”
UFC Fight Night Philadelphia takes place on Saturday, March 30 from the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Justin Gaethje and Edson Barboza headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on ESPN.
