UFC 216 will be topped by the lightweight interim title bout featuring longtime division contender Tony Ferguson opposite streaking 155-pound up-and-comer Kevin Lee in a five-round showdown inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 7, 2017.
To help fans get amped for this weekend’s pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza, the promotion recently released its “Embedded” video series, taking a closer look at the main event, as well as the 125-pound co-headliner pitting flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson opposite top division contender Ray Borg.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 4 of UFC 216 Embedded, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson shops for suits and studio equipment. His opponent Ray Borg works out at the UFC Performance Institute. Heavyweight Derrick Lewis does his pre-weigh in under the watchful eye of Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin, as opponent Fabricio Werdum announces his arrival in the UFC office. Interim lightweight title contender Tony Ferguson tries on his fight night wardrobe, and fellow headliner Kevin Lee visits a children’s cancer center. Then the stars head to T-Mobile for media day interviews and faceoffs. UFC 216 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the two title fights at UFC 216 taking place Saturday, October 7 on Pay-Per-View.
The winner of Ferguson vs. Lee is expected to face off against current division champion Conor McGregor, depending on when “Notorious” returns from his hiatus from mixed martial arts (MMA).
Also featured on the UFC 216 PPV main card is the heavyweight bout pitting former division champion Fabricio Werdum against power-punching Derrick Lewis, who collide for a spot in the crowded 265-pound title chase.
