Ray Borg vs. Brandon Moreno Moved from UFC Fight Night 126 to UFC 223 Due to Injury

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 31, 2018

A flyweight bout pitting Ray Bog against Brandon Moreno originally scheduled for UFC Fight Night 126 has been relocated to UFC 223.

Promotion officials announced the change Wednesday as a result of an undisclosed Moreno injury. UFC Fight Night 126 takes place on Feb. 18 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, and is headlined by a welterweight scrap between Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros. Meanwhile, UFC 223 is set for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on April 7 and will feature a lightweight championship clash between interim titlist Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Borg hasn’t competed since falling to Demetrious Johnson via fifth-round submission in a flyweight title bout at UFC 216 on Oct. 7. Prior to that, the Jackson-Wink MMA member had been victorious in five of his six Octagon appearances.

Moreno, 24, is coming off a decision defeat against Sergio Pettis at UFC Fight Night 114 on Aug. 5. The Mexican flyweight began his promotional tenure with successive triumphs over Louis Smolka, Ryan Benoit and Dustin Ortiz.
