Ray Borg vs. Shane Howell
We take flight in the flyweight division to kick-start the televised prelims, as Ray Borg battles Shane Howell.
Borg (6-1) suffered his first career loss in April via split decision to Dustin Ortiz in his Octagon debut, while Howell (13-7) is fighting for the first time and owns a six-bout win streak.
Round 1: Good little transition on the ground from these two flyweights, as Borg moves to the back and works for a rear-naked choke. He’s got the body controlled and is trying to secure the submission. Howell gets free of the choke, but remains locked up on the ground. Working more of a crank now, as Howell sits on his butt. Borg keeps it locked up and gets the choke again, and Howell is out.
