A new interim UFC lightweight champion was crowned in Saturday’s UFC 216 headliner when Tony Ferguson defeated Kevin Lee in the pay-per-view main event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) pushed his winning streak to 10 fights and was crowned interim 155-pound champ with a third-round submission victory over Lee (16-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC), likely setting up a future showdown with reigning divisional titleholder Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC)
