Borg To Leave MMA If He Misses Weight Again

Ray Borg has missed weight three times so far in his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) career, most recently missing the mark at UFC on ESPN 2 last month, coming in two pounds heavy for his Bantamweight fight against Casey Kenney.

Prior to that, “The Tazmexican Devil” has missed the Flyweight mark on two occasions for his fights against Louis Smolka and Geane Herrera. Now, the former title contender says he vows to not let it happen again, and he is willing to put his career on it.

Indeed, Ray took to social media to say he will hold himself accountable to the point that if he misses his mark again or a fight for something other than a major injury, he will walk away from the sport forever.

A post shared by Ray Borg (@tazmexufc) on

“Since arriving home after last fight, I have made some drastic changes to my lifestyle habits. I used to be very careless with my diet and stopped spending time in gym in between fights, which turned fight camps more into weight camps. I have taken my career to a whole new level mentally and have started taking the steps to go from dieting/fight camps to lifestyle. With this lifestyle change I believe that the world will finally see my true talent and potential. I also want it to go on record that If I ever miss weight again or miss a fight due to anything other than a serious injury, I will leave the sport of MMA forever. I am coming back better than ever.

Pretty strong commitment.

Ray has amassed a 5-4 mark so far inside the Octagon, earning a title fight against former 125-pound champion Demetrious Johnson in 2017, thought he ultimately came up short against “Mighty Mouse” after he was caught by an armbar in the fifth and final round at UFC 216.

His loss to Kenny was his second in a row, and with the added pressure he put on himself to make weight for his next outing, he needs to deliver on both ends if he wants his UFC career to keep going.

Update: Former UFC Fighter Angela Magana Wakes Up From Coma

Magana had been unresponsive since undergoing emergency surgery on her spine Tuesday night.

We have good news regarding the condition of former UFC strawweight Angela Magana.

After a nerve block procedure on a herniated disc in her back revealed she was suffering from cauda equina syndrome, Magana underwent emergency spine surgery on Tuesday night. Soon after the operation, her coach Gabriel Lamastus took over her social media account to reveal Magana had slipped into a coma.

Now we have word from Lamastus via MMA Junkie that Magana is slowly regaining consciousness. An earlier update had everyone cautiously optimistic, with Magana moving her fingers and blinking her eyes.

“Angela is responding to the treatment and is waking up!!!,” Lamastus wrote in a text message. “We are over joyed. She has been in and out of it. This started happening this morning.”

According to Lamastus, Magana has managed to speak as well.

Cauda equina syndrome involves damage to the bottom bundle of nerves located below the end of the spinal cord. It’s unclear how bad the damage was or still is, but Magana underwent the original nerve block procedure in an attempt to keep training for a fight on April 26th in Los Angeles.

Magana’s run in the UFC started via The Ultimate Fighter 20 where she lost to Aisling Day in the first round of the tournament. She’d fight for the UFC three times, going 0-3 before being released from the organization in 2017.

While she was never able to cinch a win in the cage, she did gain a lot of attention as one of the first women on the roster to embrace a full on pro wrestling heel persona. That may have caused her more pain than gain, as she was thrown out of her gym, hated by other fighters, and sucker punched by former women’s featherweight champ Cris Cyborg.

We were never fans of her Covington-level social media trolling, but we’re glad that she pulled through this scary incident and hope she sees a full recovery.

Midnight Mania! Nunes Plans to Defend 145-lb. Belt After Beating Holm

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

No one has yet captured and then simultaneously defended two titles in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Not Conor McGregor, not Daniel Cormier — but UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes hopes to be the first. Via MMAJunkie.com:

For sure (I plan to) defend both, I will defend my belt at 135 then go up and defend my belt after at 145.

Nunes has a uniquely decorated resume, perhaps the most impressive in women’s MMA. She has defeated just about every other female champion anywhere close to her weight class, from Valentina Shevchenko to Ronda Rousey to Meisha Tate, all the way up to Cris Cyborg. The only former champion who she hasn’t yet defeated is Holly Holm. When asked what her plans are, Nunes was very cognizant of that.

“Keep making history,” Nunes said. “Holly’s the only champion, the former champion, that I don’t beat yet. She’s going to be the next.”

The main issue with Nunes defending her featherweight belt is that the division is basically nonexistent except for Cris Cyborg. The second-best fighter at featherweight is, in fact, Holly Holm herself. Would Nunes rematch Cyborg?

“Honestly, I think about Holly now then we’ll see next,” Nunes said. “A (Cris) Cyborg rematch? Why not? We’ll see what’s next.”

Her mother will not be happy to hear that. Perhaps Nunes should not be so quick to overlook Holly Holm. Holm is known for her toughness and cardio. If she survives Nunes’ power early, she could give the double champion problems in the later rounds, especially if she manages to take Nunes down and get top control. Nunes and Holm are scheduled to clash in the co-main event of UFC 239 on July 6th.

UFC 237 Video: Anderson Silva Holds Open Workout In Rio

Anderson Silva will look to get back into the win column when he faces off against Jared Cannonier at the upcoming UFC 237 pay-per-view (PPV) event on May 11, 2019 inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Before then, “The Spider” showed off some of his best moves earlier today (April 17, 2019) by working out for the media inside Cesario Bezerra Boxing Club in Rio de Janeiro to promote the fight, and MMA Fighting was there to capture all the action.

Silva was last seen coming up short to current UFC interim Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya a few months ago at UFC 234 (see the highlights here). Over his last seven outings inside the Octagon, Anderson has dropped five with one no contest sandwiched in between.

While the matchup against Cannonier seems odd at this point in Anderson’s career, Jared is more than capable, as evidenced by his knockout victory over David Branch in his last outing.

UFC 237 will feature a women’s Strawweight title fight between division champion Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade. In the co-main event, Jose Aldo will take on Alexander Volkanovski.

Former UFC Fighter Angela Magana In Coma After Back Surgery Gone Wrong

The controversial ‘Queen’ of WMMA is currently fighting for her life after complications from a nerve block procedure she underwent to keep training for a fight.

Strawweight fighter Angela Magana is currently battling for her life after slipping into a coma following a surgical procedure on her back.

Magana, currently based in Puerto Rico, entered University Hospital on Monday to have a nerve block procedure done on her back to ease pain caused by a herniated disc. Afterwards she displayed signs of cauda equina syndrome, where nerves in the lower cauda equina region of the back are damaged. Emergency surgery was performed on Tuesday, but Magana has still not regained consciousness since that procedure was completed.

Magana’s coach Gabriel Lamastus has been updating people on social media regarding the situation. Here’s the relevant tweets, starting with a worried Magana announcing she’s about to undergo surgery.

“She’s in a coma, and we’re waiting to hear some positive news,” Lamastus told MMA Junkie. “The surgery went fine. The problem was anesthesia. It’s very rare that patients react bad to anesthesia, but it does happen, and I guess this is one of those rare cases. But I’m being positive. She’ll be fine, and she’ll wake up. She’s a fighter. I’m just staying positive.”

Magana was a lightning rod for controversy throughout her three year run with the UFC. After becoming something of a villain on The Ultimate Fighter 20, Magana embraced her heel role and leaned into it hard on social media, earning her the ire of a lot of fans.

Even fighters were not happy with her antics. Former featherweight champ Cris Cyborg famously punched her during a UFC Fighter Summit.

All of that seems very small and unimportant now compared to what’s happening, and we can only hope Magana wakes up soon and recovers fully.

Midnight Mania! Dillashaw Using Suspension For Long-Needed Surgeries

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw is using his two-year suspension from USADA as a chance to finally take care of long-term injuries. He just had surgery on his right shoulder, and he posted on Instagram that two months from now, he will be getting surgery on his left.

Battle scars added to my hawk. Surgery went well, torn rotator cuff, labrum and some biceps tendon repair. Two months from now I’m getting my left shoulder done, it’s the worst of the two. The recovery time is long and sucks but it will be nice to have them finally fixed. Been needing these surgeries for three years now.

In the comments, someone suggested maybe not posting for awhile, because ‘all the haters’ would have a field day. Dillashaw replied,

let em I made the mistake. If talking to someone like that is what makes them feel better that’s on them.

Dillashaw tested positive for EPO, a performance-enhancing substance that helps athletes increase their stamina. EPO can not be taken orally, ruling out the possibility of a tainted supplement. USADA then retested some of his old samples and one of those came back positive for EPO as well. He faced a lot of backlash, particularly from former opponents like Cody Garbrandt and Henry Cejudo. His strength and conditioning coach released a ridiculous statement that has to be read to be believed. Dominick Cruz says that Dillashaw will return better than ever, having had a chance to heal up and spend time with his family. It’s too early to tell, but Cruz’s prediction may prove to be the most accurate.

Yoel Romero Has A Trick Question For Israel Adesanya

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, considers himself to be the best middleweight in the world after disposing of ex-champion Anderson Silva back in February.

Not everyone agrees.

As most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans would attest, it’s hard to claim total supremacy without first defeating the division champion. And even if Adesanya is able to overthrow Robert Whittaker in September, No. 1-ranked Yoel Romero remains in his rearview mirror.

Romero (13-3) was expected to make his Octagon return at the upcoming UFC event in Ft. Lauderdale; however, an untimely bout with pneumonia booted him from his Ronaldo Souza rematch and left him sidelined until further notice.

Adesanya (17-0), meanwhile, is going to fight “The Reaper” in a middleweight title unification bout later this year, thanks to a thrilling, five-round unanimous decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 236 last weekend in Atlanta (watch it).

Maybe we can resurrect this bout while we wait?

Midnight Mania! Watch NBA Star Land ‘Bones’-Approved Spinning Elbow

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Every so often you see MMA emerge, sometimes completely by accident, in places and situations you least expect. That happened tonight, as Philadelphia 76ers power forward landed a pretty effective spinning elbow on Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen.

The foul drew praise from UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who tweeted, “That technique wasn’t too bad, always room in the UFC.” Jones is something of a specialist with the spinning elbow. He has landed it with frequency throughout his career, notably on Stephan Bonnar, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, and Alexander Gustafsson in their first bout. That particular spinning elbow may have saved his belt, rocking Gustafsson and turning the momentum in a very close fight against the Swede.

It is unlikely the 7-foot tall Embiid, who weighs 249 pounds, would ever consider competing in the Octagon. He signed a 147 million dollar contract over five years, earning 25 million dollars for the 2018/2019 season. If he ever wanted to take a massive pay cut to start over in a sport that inflicts unknown amounts of long-term damage on the brain, he could probably go train with ‘Bones’! He’s already got at least one technique down. We can officially add him to the list of non-MMA fighters we wouldn’t want to fight.

Embiid claimed the foul wasn’t intentional, but his own teammate couldn’t help but break into a chuckle when he said that.


Insomnia

Supposedly Conor McGregor declined to fight Justin Gaethje.

Israel Adesanya may or may not get past Robert Whittaker next, but he is already an unbelievable phenom. The progress he has made in a short time is incredible.

Max Holloway is nothing but class all day. For that matter, so was everyone else in the main and co-main event at UFC 236. It was a pleasure to watch four fighters with nothing but respect for each other go to war in the Octagon.

Khabib Nurmagomedov says he didn’t agree with the scorecards. That seems like a pointless debate, but it is only fair to Max to note that he did much better than the final score indicated; I half expected a split decision at the end.

For people arguing immediately after UFC 236 about scorecards and whether Poirier-Holloway or Adesanya-Gastelum was better, Justin Gaethje has a response: who cares about that? We just witnessed legends do battle!

Taking the gold back to Africa is a great angle for the UFC’s two Nigerian-born champions.

Everyone needs a friend as hyped for them and their success as Theo Von is for Dustin Poirier.

No shit. That was just about the toughest fight we’ve ever seen.

Imagine watching Israel Adesanya and Kelvin Gastelum pour their blood out in the Octagon and decide it was the interim titles that made the fight great. Also… maybe actually pay them some real coin for fights like that?

Dustin Poirier vs. Tony Ferguson would be unbelievable as a matchup. There are just no bad fights at the top of the lightweight division.

It’s this kind of difficult, boring work that often gets overlooked in favor of the difficult but fun sparring or grappling. Both are important for a fighter’s improvement.
