Kevin Lee makes weight for UFC 216 in dramatic fashion

Saturday, 07 Oct, 2017

"He's not gonna defend or vacate, he's gonna have to fight me".

Here are five classic contests you must watch before sitting down for UFC 216. That's the thing about fighting - you can't hide who you really are. Earlier today, tomorrow's night's UFC 216 nearly lost its #Main Event.

After the one hour extension Lee weighed in again, this time successfully at 154.5 pounds, making the fight official. Like he even said: Between rounds, he's a very smart fighter.

Dariush is fighting for the first time since getting iced by Edson Barboza, while Dunham enters on a four-fight winning streak, the longest since the start of his UFC tenure. There's no one pound leeway in title fights, so in order to be eligible for the belt, he must tip the scales at 155 lbs or lower.

Do you think Demetrious Johnson will make history on Saturday night and set the all-time record for most consecutive UFC title defenses? "If the fans like what they see, then great".

That this breaks UFC precedent is even more weird.

Borella is coming off a split-decision win over Milana Dudieva in Invicta FC and is unbeaten in her last six, while Faria has only lost twice in the last six years, both times to elite strawweights. "Kevin Lee is my brother-in-arms".

Kevin Lee's coach is not concerned about the heavy weight cut affecting his fighter's performance ahead of UFC 216. I just did a charity event at Luxor [Hotel].

When incidents like the bathroom one occur, it is to build up interest in a fight.

"I'm one of the most ruthless vatos out there".

Ferguson, who has won his last nine fights, felt as though he was robbed of a well-deserved title shot last November at the Madison Square Garden when Eddie Alvarez welcomed Conor McGregor to the lightweight division. He hopes to grow on the streak this Saturday as I have mentioned earlier in this article.

These two arrogant, brash and incredibly talented lightweights grace the main event with another UFC interim belt on the line.

Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson is considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in MMA.

But unlike early-September in Edmonton, the fates transpired to keep Saturday night's interim lightweight title on the UFC 216 docket. A Las Vegas local, Lee has taken advantage of the new UFC Perfomance Institute, a facility that has grown increasingly popular with the fighters since it first opened its doors back in May. "It's a fistfight. For you to be able to win that many consecutive fistfights?"
