Flyweights Ray Borg and Chris Kelades opened the UFC Fight Night 60 main card.
Borg, 21, has title aspirations in his UFC career. At a young age, he has already found success at a high level. Kelades, 33, looked to teach him an early lesson in this crossroads meeting, and score an upset in his second UFC fight.
Chris Kelades was physically overmatched against Ray Borg from the beginning of the fight. The Albuquerque, New Mexico fighter scored with powerful slams and ground work as he could maintain it. He put forth a solid submission attempt late in the first round, but couldn’t finish.
Round two of their UFC Fight Night 60 encounter saw Borg continually win ground position. He manhandled Kelades, and nearly locked in multiple submission attempts throughout this stage in the fight.
Kelades couldn’t impose himself, and hoped for more luck going into the final five minutes, down 2-0, he proceeded with reckless abandon.
That ended in a third-round submission defeat. Ray Borg scored a kimura after two minutes of grappling and humiliating Kelades in the final round. It was his last chance, but Kelades just couldn’t do anything to trouble Borg, who has now won two straight UFC fights — both by submission.
