The UFC returns to Las Vegas this week, and the promotion has rolled out its “Embedded” treatment for a preview of Saturday’s UFC 216 event.
UFC 216, which features two title fights, takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and UFC Fight Pass.
In the headliner, Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) takes on Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) for an interim lightweight title. The winner will stay in line for a potential unification bout against champion Conor McGregor.
In the co-main event, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC) looks for a UFC-record 11th straight title defense when he meets challenger Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC). That fight was pushed back from UFC 215 in September in Edmonton due to a Borg illness on fight day.
In the fourth episode of “Embedded,” Johnson goes suit shopping and visits an art store. Borg gets in a workout at the UFC Performance Institute. Derrick Lewis and Fabricio Werdum make their own arrivals. Ferguson tries on his new fight shorts, and Lee heads to a children’s hospital to visit with young cancer patients – where he is offered chips and cookies from basically the cutest kid ever.
