Ray Borg and his family are going through the hardest time of their life as Anthony Borg, the six-month-old son of Albuquerque MMA fighters Ray and Amanda Borg is suffering from hydrocephalus which is an abnormal buildup of fluid in the brain and has been subjected to numerous surgeries.
Ray took to Twitter to give an update on his son’s medical condition and announced that:
“Well after days of waiting and days of doctors and nurses not believing us that his shunt failed they did another MRI today that showed an increase in fluid so now they believe us. He will be heading into surgery number 4 this afternoon. Thank you for your positivity and prayers.”

Brandon Schaub, who is a former MMA fighter and currently a comedian and a podcast host, recently appeared on Joe Rogan Experience offered to cover the remaining costs of Ray Borg’s son’s medical expenses.
“So his baby was having these surgeries, and I saw someone post a shirt that Ray Borg [created]… He posted a shirt and [says], ‘all these proceeds from the shirt go to help me pay for my child’s medical bill’. So someone goes, ‘Schaub, look into this’. I click on it and I see his son on the respirator. Broke my heart, man.
I (direct messaged) Ray because [he said], ‘We need help with the medical bills’. I will pay for your medical bills, Ray. I will cover it… When I say I will help you, Ray, I am dead serious. I’m not one of these guys, I don’t need the publicity, I don’t need any of that. I (direct messaged) you my number, I will cover the medical bills. I got you, brother, I got you. Hit me up, it’s not a game, no publicity, I will take care of you and your family.”
The MMA India team whishes Ray Borg all the best and we hope his family quickly recovers from this tough time.
