Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is finally done co-promoting the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor, which took place late last month Las Vegas, Nevada.
After a brief pit stop in Rotterdam, the promotion will return to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this Saturday (Sept. 9, 2017) with the UFC 215: “Johnson vs. Borg” extravaganza from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, which features flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson attempting to set an all-time title defense record at 11 straight.
“Mighty Mouse” is currently tied with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva at 10, but taking out Ray Borg in the five-round pay-per-view (PPV) headliner will put him in a class all his own.
In the co-main event, Amanda Nunes will look to defend her title against Valentina Shevchenko in a rematch from their close three-round war back at UFC 196, which ended in favor of “Lioness.”
To get fans pumped up for the event, the promotion released a “Countdown” video preview with all the major storylines behind UFC 215, conveniently embedded in the video player above.
