Before Ray Borg steps into the Octagon to potentially pull off a big upset against Demetrious Johnson in the main event of UFC 215 on Sept. 9, 2017 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, take a trip back to one of “Tazmexican Devil’s” most dominant performances.
Back in 2015, Borg was in search of his second straight win inside the Octagon, stepping in to face Chris Kelades at UFC Fight Night 60 on February 14 in Broomfield, Colorado. The fight proved competitive for the first two rounds, as Kelades was also hoping to secure his second straight win.
But, in the third and final round, Borg found himself in a dominant ground position and eventually sunk in a kimura which forced an instant tap from Kelades. Since then, Borg has gone on to go 3-1 to earn his first ever world title fight against the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, as he tries to prevent Johnson from scoring his eleventh straight title defense.
UFC 215 in the co-main event, women’s Bantamweight title holder Amanda Nunes will defend her title against Valentina Shevchenko. The card did take a hit, though, as a heavyweight fight between Junior dos Santos and Francis Ngannou was scrapped after “JDS” was notified of a potential United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) violation.
