Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently tied a ribbon around its UFC 216 media day for the “Ferguson vs. Lee”-led pay-per-view (PPV) event this weekend (Sat., Oct. 7, 2017) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. UFC 216 will be headlined by an interim Lightweight title bout between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee, whom will also be fighting for a chance to unify the 155-pound title against division champion, Conor McGregor.
The co-main event will feature Demetrious Johnson against Ray Borg in what will be a record-breaking attempt for “Mighty Mouse” to eclipse the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion’s title defense record (11). In addition, Fabricio Werdum and Derrick Lewis will throw down in Heavyweight action.
