Who wins the Ray Borg vs. Demetrious Johnson fight and why?


COLE HENRY, MMATorch Contributor

I am not a fan of this fight at all… I think that Borg has done nothing to earn this shot, and he’s done plenty to justify having it taken away. I just don’t see how this fight is competitive, and with these guys being flyweights it’s unlikely that he manages to catch DJ with a big shot or anything like that. I think this is another classic DJ performance and he wins via submission near the end of the second round. I do think that Johnson will lose someday, but I would be surprised if it was to Ray Borg.

Nothing against Borg, but I think Johnson wins this fight when and how he wants to. Demetrious Johnson is the best fighter in the world and one of the best of all time. He has no discernible weaknesses and in fact excels in all areas. His striking, his wrestling, his grappling, his cardio are all fantastic. In order to beat him, you’re going to have to fight a perfect fight. That’s asking way too much of someone. It’s highly unlikely that Borg can stop Johnson, so you’re asking him to fight the best fighter on the planet for five rounds without making a single mistake that Johnson can capitalize on. That’s a daunting task. As for how I think the fight ends, I think Johnson wins by submission late in the 4th round.

Demetrious Johnson all the way. I believe he outclasses and outshines Ray Borg in every way possible. Johnson will prove to be too quick and will break the record for most title defenses ever in the UFC. Johnson via TKO.
