Ray Borg just can’t catch a break. That’s according to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight himself, who made the proclamation after he was involved in a car wreck in his hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Taking to social media, “The Tazmexican Devil” posted a picture of his damaged vehicle, while taking a shot at the “shit” drivers in “Burque."
Thankfully, his family escaped unharmed.
“I can’t remember the last time I caught a break,” Borg said. “People in Albuquerque can’t drive for shit, thank god the kids are ok.”
Indeed, it’s been a trying past year for the former UFC title contender, as he had to watch his infant son go through numerous brain surgeries after he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which forced the infant to spend more than 60 days in the hospital.
Prior to that, Borg's fight against Brandon Moreno — which was set for UFC 223 last year — was canceled after he was caught in the crossfire of Conor McGregor’s dolly-throwing rampage in Brooklyn. And just a few months ago, Borg slipped and hurt himself in the bathtub while trying to cut weight for his fight against Casey Kenney.
Ultimately, Borg was able to compete; however, he failed to make weight for the bout because of his accident and subsequent hospitalization. He ultimately ended up losing to Kenny via unanimous decision. Once the dust settled, Borg issued a post-fight statement, claiming that if he ever missed weight for anything other than a major medical emergency, he would leave the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) forever.
