UFC 216: Ferguson vs. Lee Results

Barb Honchak faces off with Gillian Robertson before their bout on The Ultimate Fighter

Kevin Lee will take on Tony Ferguson with the interim lightweight belt on the line this Saturday at UFC 216.

On Episode 4 of UFC 216 Embedded, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson shops for suits and studio equipment.

Lee is 16-2 overall, won five consecutive bouts and nine of his last ten.

"I like blue panties", Ferguson said.

"If not maybe he should go back, take a fight vs Diaz or something and show that you can beat the man because as far as I'm concerned he has lost three of his last four fights".

The 25-year-old MI native, who's aiming for his sixth victory in the space of 18 months, stopped Francisco Trinaldo in March and Michael Chiesa in June - both by submission.

He added: "In my head now, I'm very interested in seeing this fight this weekend and to see how the lightweight title picture pans out and to go in and correct that whole situation".

British PM May should call a leadership contest, former party chairman says
The BBC quoted May as saying the country needed "calm leadership" adding: "That's what I'm providing". He said it was unclear if there would be enough support to topple May.

This did not stop the #2 contender from competing, instead, accepting a fight against former champion Rafael Dos Anjos in Mexico City. Watch the fighters step on the scale from Las Vegas, Nev. With each subsequent appearance, Ferguson has turned doubters into believers, showcasing an unorthodox, but effective style that makes him hard for opponents to solve and tremendously entertaining to watch.

Johnson has the chance to claim the record for the most consecutive title defenses in UFC history (11), and really there's no good reason to believe that he won't do so on Saturday night.

If Lee is able to pull off a huge upset against Ferguson and earn his way to the "money fight" in MMA today against McGregor, the build-up to the fight should prove to be quite interesting given Lee and McGregor's ability on the microphone.

Johnson is a monster -1200 favorite (bet $1200 to win $100), with Borg listed as a +700 underdog (bet $100 to win $700) at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Ferguson weighed in on the mark at 155-pound but Lee missed the mark. I think the first round is going to go awful for him, the second round is going to go bad for him, all the way through the fifth. "I fight so that he doesn't have to". A win would also extend his unbeaten streak to 13.

The problem is that a fighter dying during a weight cut is all too real of a possibility.
