  • UFC 216 Kevin Lee fails to make championship weight NSAC grants him 1 hour to lose 1 pound

He spoke of the respect he has for his opponent in the build up to the fight, saying: 'I've said this from the beginning that Tony (Ferguson) is the toughest fight out there for me. "If the fans like what they see, then great". Bibulatov joined the UFC and made his debut earlier this year at UFC 210, outpointing Jenel Lausa. "We've been working for this since we started working together four years ago, and we expect to go out and win a belt". His showdown with Patrick Williams was a highly exciting affair, with Duquesnoy displaying his evolved striking and conditioning when he defeated Williams by TKO in the opening minute of the second round. A win would also extend his unbeaten streak to 13. "Kevin Lee is my brother-in-arms". He beat Chiesa at his own game and will now face Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight title this Saturday. On a five-fight winning streak in the UFC's most competitive division, he has worked his way to the top to challenge for UFC gold.

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

In anticipation of stepped-up raids, lawmakers passed a collection of other bills aimed at resisting Trump's immigration agenda. The Trump administration warned against the first-of-its-kind law, but the trendsetting state may have a national impact.

There is no doubt about Tony Ferguson's title credentials, with nine consecutive wins dating back to 2012 including five of those victories coming by way of submission. The action is scheduled to get underway at 23:30 on Saturday evening, with the main card kicking off at the usual eye watering time of 03:00.

It comes over a longer period of time, but we have several people who can step into the fold. I want to keep getting better and better .

The UFC's pound-for-pound number one fighter Demetrious Johnson has to settle for tonight's co-main event slot for his bid to set a new record for consecutive title defences (11) when he puts his flyweight belt on the line against Ray Borg. "A lot of people don't understand that a lot of the champions and big fighters make most of their money on these big mega cards".

Johnson is the best fighter on the planet and has no real holes, so while I think Borg is the most well-rounded and balanced fighter Johnson has faced outside of Joseph Benavidez, I still believe the gap between the two is ginormous and "Mighty Mouse" will once again demonstrate his dominance.
