Ray Borg was forced out of his first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) title fight against Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson — which was set to headline last night’s (Sat., Sept. 9, 2017) UFC 215 event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada — due to an illness.
And while “The Tazmexican Devil” initially sent out a very calm statement following the setback, he wasn’t as kind to all of his critics on social media, as he took to Twitter to lash out at all the naysayers.
You dumbass, 1 that was suppose to be just a funny caption and 2 it wasn’t weight cutting issues.

Just tired of all you duche bags so quick to bash us without really knowing what happens.

The remaining tweets, which have since been deleted, were secured by MMA Fighting and included Borg reminding everyone he wasn’t the only one who’s ever fallen ill before a bout.
The promotion is still keen on rescheduling the 125-pound title fight sooner, rather than later, though no official word on when and where it will take place has been given.
That means “Mighty Mouse” will have to sit on the sidelines a bit longer before he gets the chance to break the all-time title defense record with eleven in a row. Something Borg is bent on preventing from happening.
