– An interview came out with you, where you said that you removed a “piece of meat” from your eye. It’s been five days – have you been able to put it back?
“Maybe I expressed myself illiterate there. It turned out – when I was washing in the shower, I saw that I had blood. He started pulling it off, and it was bound by some sort of film in his eyes. In general, he did not withdraw in any way, and I began to literally withdraw him. You know, it kinda reminds me of half-boiled eggs. Only this one was bloody. And I pulled it out of my eye. I think it’s still visible.
– You said you were at the doctor’s when we started arranging an interview. What did the doctor say?
“It turned out that there was nothing to worry about, everything was fine. Today, for the second time, I was at the doctor’s, not in the emergency room, but in the usual one.

Before starting his MMA career and entering the UFC, Borshchev participated in kickboxing, representing the Volgograd team at the Russian championships.
