Ray Borg has reached out to the media following his exit from UFC 215.
Borg had his planned main event flyweight title fight scheduled vs. Demetrious Johnson called off after becoming too ill to compete.
“First, I want to say I’m sorry to the fans and to Demetrious Johnson for being unable to fight,” Borg said in a statement to MMA Weekly. “I want to say thank you to Dr. Davidson, the UFC and to Jeff Novitsky for looking out for my health and best interests.
“I also want to add that I am no longer working with Perfecting Athletes and Michelle Ingels, who was not authorized to speak on my behalf.”
There have been reports that the fight could be rescheduled for UFC 216 next month, but nothing has been confirmed by the promotion.
