Officials have set the upcoming October UFC 216 pay-per-view fight card, with Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee meeting in the main event for the interim lightweight title.
Set for October 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the card also features Fabricio Werdum vs. Derrick Lewis and Paige VanZant vs. Jessica Eye.
