After Borg missed his fight against Nathan Maness for the second time in a row at UFC on ESPN+ 31, he was released from the UFC in August 2020, giving his record as a mixed martial artist and UFC fighter as 16-5 and 7-5 respectively. Borg has won three in a row after leaving the UFC, including bouts over fellow ex-UFC competitors Cody Gibson and Ricky Bandejas, both of whom were fighting under the Eagle FC banner.
Borg used Twitter to discuss his future with the UFC.
“It’s been 2 years since being cut from the UFC. I’ve gone through a lot in that time frame and have reinvented myself as a man. 3 straight wins, no hiccups or f*ck ups, and 2 of my 3 fights where fight of the night bangers. @danawhite I want my job back!”
