    make weight or pay for it, you probably did it to have an advantage on your opponent, don't complain about that. BUT, terrible decision once again. When they announced the winner, my dog woke up barking and let a giant fart go. Even he has more knowledge of MMA than these so called judges. Maybe take 100% off their purses, and let Ray Borg spar with them for a day. I bet he will lose a lot of weight while smashing their heads in

    Crazy robbery. Good for Borg acknowledging he won. Not making weight is unprofessional. But bias aside, 2nd/3rd rd were all Borg. Keep your head up and come back stronger brother!

  • We the People M.A.G.A proud to be american 1776

    That’s not the useful breakdown

    Obviously a betting favorite is more likely to win than a betting underdog whether or not they make weight. What would be more useful to know is the win % for betting favorites that miss weight vs for betting favorites that make weight. And similarly for betting underdogs that miss weight vs betting underdogs that make weight. Among those 42 that missed weight, what % would have been expected to win based on the betting odds? I gather that favorites and underdogs were equally likely to miss weight since there were 21 of each among the 42 cases, so the 55% win rate suggests a net positive result for those that miss weight if the aggregate expected win rate was around 50%. You can claim my original statement was an inaccurate exaggeration but it would seem the extra weight is still a net advantage.

    Ray won that fight. I'm amazed casey thinks he deserved that one. The judges did a horrible job scoring in favor of case when he clearly was thrown around and take down and controlled the whole fight. But did a awesome job at protecting their new fighter in his debut fight, so that he can make UFC more money fights. All that work ray did for nothing, plus you rob him of what little cash the fighers make per fight. What ever happened to honesty and integerty judges? Maybe I should rewatch that one and look for those magical moments casey was talking about that helped him win the fight, lol

    This is how The YFC gets rid of people they can't control. Dana would like us to believe he thinks Ray was robbed, but, I would bet anything Dana was lining the pockets of the one judge that have such a lopsided scorecard against Ray. Ray beat that ass in rounds 2-3. Sad but this is the game they play with people they want out. Ray missing weight was probably the final straw for Dana. I love Ray, he is so kind and genuine, I hope he gets back to winning soon!

    really shitty he got robbed by clearly incompitant judges, maybe Ray should seriously consider a different career path.. too many personal issues holding him back and he keeps missing weight. he's going the Johnny Hendricks route rn without the steroids

  • Ronald Thompson

    Borg keeps saying the guy's manager took more money & that they should realize it's his livelihood and that the money is for his family. Borg needs to realize it's his own fault and that if he made weight he wouldn't have that problem. It's his own fault, stop blaming others

    • Ronald Thompson
      Ronald Thompson Month ago

      +World Peace when they sign the contract to fight they have months to prepare. I understand it's not easy but you have to remember they only have to focus on training for the fight. They don't go to 9-5 jobs, they train every day. This is the life they chose, tough work can provide big rewards. Everyone can find something wrong with anything, it's the one that adapts & overcomes that is the victor and that's what these fighters need to do to get where they want to go. I wish Borg & the rest of them all the luck in the world...

    • World Peace
      World Peace Month ago

      +Ronald Thompson I respect your respond. But man I done wrestling before and when it comes to weight cutting one of the hardest things to balance is the level of strength, cardio and nutrition and + the recovery after weight in. It's not easy man it looks easy it sounds easy but it's really not easy. Also there's not even formula to weight cutting so it depends on what type of way you follow to weight cutting remind you this sport is fairly new

    • Ronald Thompson
      Ronald Thompson Month ago

      +World Peace Anything you do in life isn't easy. He knew months in advance he had to go in prepared or this would happen. To prevent this from happening you have to make weight, he knew this. I like Borg, I just don't believe in making excuses.

    • World Peace

    I thought he should have gotten the win, as well. It was close but they should have given it to Borg. I can't believe his opponent kept the money, knowing what he goes through back home with his son. And, they even had to suck another 10% out of him. That's ridiculous, his debut keeping not 20% but 30% of a father's pay check who's in need to help his son. I'll be rooting against that scum every damn time.

    • Haitian Xu
      Haitian Xu Month ago +1

      +S Saxman Right, right, that's why so many UFC fighters are flocking over to Bellator. I'm sure a no name like Ray Borg would get paid well in an org that pays prelim fighters in the low four figures. Oh I'm sure sponsorship will make up for it even though someone like former UFC Champ Ben Henderson has problem getting sponsors in the post-Reebok era. But I'm sure Ray fucking Borg will have an easier time with his massive popularity.
      lWhatever helps you sleep at night, lol.

    • S Saxman
      S Saxman Month ago

      +Haitian Xu , bellator fighters typically make more money than UFC fighter's... sponsors and such , but nice try

    • Haitian Xu
      Haitian Xu Month ago +1

      +S Saxman Who cares about making weight when you have a child with special needs?
      Answer: anyone who wants to provide for his child and not lose that 30% pay. Ray Borg's base pay is 25k/25k. By not making weight, he loses 30% of both show and win, that's 7.5k show, 7.5k win, that's a hell of a lot of money for someone in his position.
      What are you going to say now, who cares about money? Yeah, why would a financially struggling father care about potentially losing 15 grand, I wonder...
      You're right, the UFC showed him compassion, and he paid them back with unprofessionalism. Don't worry, like I said they'll get rid of his bum ass soon so he can go make less and cry in Bellator.

    • S Saxman

    • Haitian Xu
      Haitian Xu Month ago +1

      +S Saxman Why should the UFC give 2 craps about him when he doesn't give a crap about the UFC or acting like a professional fighter? UFC gives him a championship fight, he misses weight and forced them to cancel the fight. UFC keeps him in the org despite cutting so many other flyweights, and he repays them by missing weight IN A WEIGHT CLASS ABOVE, after pulling out half a dozen times with various excuses. Don't worry you'll know when he gets his release papers, then you can bitch about how the UFC is a heartless corporation, LOL. How much more entitled can one get honestly.
