Ray Borg is out of UFC on ESPN 10.
Borg (13-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC), a former UFC title challenger, has withdrawn from his fight against Merab Dvalishvili for personal reasons. Taking Borg’s place will be UFC newcomer Gustavo Lopez. The fight will take place at a 140-pound catchweight.
The UFC announced Borg’s withdrawal during Thursday’s virtual media day. Dvalishvili’s manager, Oren Hodak, and Lopez’s manager, Danny Rubenstein of Ruby Sports & Entertainment, both confirmed the new matchup to MMA Junkie shortly thereafter.
Borg seemed to indicate on Twitter that his last-minute withdrawal had something to do with his son’s well being.
