13 September, 2017

 
The recently postponed title fight between Demetrious Johnson and Ray Borg now has a new home, as "Mighty Mouse" will defend his flyweight crown for the 11th time and attempt to make history on Oct. 7 when he meets Borg in a UFC 216 showdown at T-Mobile Arena.

A viral illness forced Borg out of last weekend's UFC 215 main event in Edmonton, but the pair of elite 125-pounders will now meet in Las Vegas, with Johnson attempting to break his tie with Anderson Silva for most successful title defenses in UFC history, giving him sole possession of that all-time mark.

In a previously announced championship bout on the UFC 216 card, Tony Ferguson battles Kevin Lee for the interim UFC lightweight title.
