Tonight could be a historic night, as Demetrious Johnson will be working for his eleventh title defense, and a new UFC record for retaining the belt.
Johnson will take on rising flyweight contender Ray Borg, who has been booked for a title shot, thanks to a 5-2 run in the UFC. Most recently, Borg has scored wins over Jussier “Formiga” and Louis Smolka, while Johnson is coming off an impressive submission win over Wilson Reis. What else is new right?
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features Johnson and Borg weighing-in on tonight’s co-main event.
UFC 216 will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
