    Only one fighter missed weight for this card, and it’s former flyweight title challenger Ray Borg. For someone who’s had problems making 125 in the past, Borg weighed 137.75 lbs for his fight against LFA champion Casey Kenney, who accepted the bout on short notice. Borg hasn’t fought since his title loss to Demetrious Johnson in 2017, and he had three bout cancellations in 2018. This included an eye injury stemming from Conor McGregor’s dolly-throwing incident at UFC 223, his infant son’s well-documented medical problems, and undisclosed medical issues when he was scheduled to fight Joseph Benavidez last November. Borg has been fined 30% of his purse.

    It’s unprofessional and unacceptable. Borg should never get another title shot. Not even if he goes on a streak and mops all the competition. I would say they should make him fight at 145 but he’d probably miss weight there too.

    Borg has been through a lot, this mostly makes me worry that his head isn't in the game.

    Guess he just fucked up on his cut. Its his fault, he is like 5'3. He literally has no reason to weigh more then 140-145.

    HAVE YOU EVER TRIED CUTTING WEIGHT WITH A SERIOUS LIFE THREATENING EYE INJURY TS?

    NO

    The guy nearly died in the attack which was while he was weight cutting. Hes probably permanently scarred and every time he cuts weight it must remind him of the bus attack... Cutting will bring it all back..
