Reminder: 'Countdown to UFC 216: Ferguson vs. Lee' debuts today on FS1


As a reminder, the UFC’s traditional pre-event show returns today with the debut of “Countdown to UFC 216: Ferguson vs. Lee” on FS1.

The one-hour special previews the card’s interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC), which has become heated outside the cage, as well.

The show also dives into the co-main event flyweight title fight between champ Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC) and challenger Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC), which was delayed from the UFC 215 main event when Borg fell ill. Johnson is attempting to break Anderson Silva’s UFC record for consecutive title defenses.

Also on the main card, Derrick Lewis (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) takes on former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum (21-7-1 MMA, 9-4 UFC).

“Countdown” airs at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on FS1, and replays air throughout the week.
