And bouncing back up in weight. He was one of the guys that was on a short list of fighters that Mighty Mouse said he wanted to defend his title against.

Ray Borg misses weight.

Then pushes a crazy pace, which makes it seem as if he didn't try to make weight at all.

I don't know him or his situation but that straight up makes him look like a cheater.

Hey Ray Borg's kickboxing looked so much better.

Ben Rothwell and Chase Sherman, too.

That's what I like to see.

Rothwell looked sharper and more accurate than he has in his last few fights. The technique with which he's delivering punches and kicks is better. His entire game improved.
