Ray Borg: ‘I don’t need a nutritionist, I’m just going to do what I’ve done before’
Flyweight title challenger Ray Borg says he won’t be using a nutritionist to help with his weight cut for UFC 216.
“I found myself in a weird predicament,” Borg said on The MMA Hour. “I found myself wanting to just do what I did to get to the show. When I got to the UFC, UFC fights prior, I knew my body more than any nutritionist did. No matter how many nutritionists I’ve worked with, I know how my body reacts to certain things and I know the way I can cut weight the easiest, the best, and the fastest. I tried to complicate things by adding in too many people just to make things easier throughout my career. So as of right now, I’m just doing what got me to the show, doing what I used to do with a little bit of guidance from the nutritionist for the UFC Performance Institute. So, just consulting with him, he’s going to just kinda monitor everything, make sure I’m doing everything right and I make sure I stay on my food, make sure the biggest thing is recovery after training, things like that. But other than that, right now, where my weight’s at, I don’t need a nutritionist. I’m just going to do what I’ve done before.”
