Borg Claims Healthy, But Still Pulls Out Of UFC 215

Speaking to TMZ Sports one day prior to pull out of the UFC 215 main event Ray Borg claimed that he felt “fantastic,” and was in the best shape of his life.

Borg claimed to TMZ that…

“I feel fantastic man, weight’s good, feeling sharp. Best shape I’ve ever been in my life… I feel really good about this whole entire camp and this fight in general.”

The challenger for Demetrious Johnson’s UFC flyweight title pulled out of Saturday’s main event on Thursday after coming down with a viral illness. The UFC issued a statement saying he was “deemed unfit to compete by the UFC medical team.”
The fight is expected to be rescheduled — it could be as soon as UFC 216 in October.
