UFC fighter Ray Borg recently discussed his upcoming UFC Fight Night 44 bout against Shane Howell. Below are some highlights:
Borg on losing his UFC debut to Dustin Ortiz by split decision: "I took that loss a lot of different ways. Obviously, I wanted to figure out what wrong, but I also took it as a confidence-builder. I'm a very confident person, but I've only been fighting competitively for two years. I kind of had these emotions wondering if I'm at this guy's level."
Borg on what he took away from the fight: "I had some doubts in my mind about competing at this level. People keep telling me how great of a performance it was, but in my opinion, it was a bad one. It really put it in my head that even with a not-so-good performance, I can still compete with the best at that level."
