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