Borg Responds to Critics of Injury
Ray Borg was supposed to be fighting at UFC 223, taking on Brandon Moreno in a flyweight contest. But then, Conor McGregor made his presence felt.
As reported by MMA Fighting, the incident saw several cancelations, including Borg’s bout with Moreno. Glass shattered from the attack by McGregor cut Borg on the eye, forcing his withdrawal.
Borg has been questioned from online critics about the severity of his injury. So, the former UFC flyweight title challenger took to social media to respond.

“For the keyboard gangsters that think this is a cop-out and for some reason think glasses make you invincible,” Borg wrote. “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 two doctors I was deemed unfit to compete so hey, what do you know, food was taken off of my family’s plate for something out of my control.”
