UFC 216 finalized: With Johnson-Borg addition, 1 bout moves from PPV to UFC Fight Pass


With the addition of a new title fight, next month’s UFC 216 lineup has experienced a slight shuffle.

As recently reported, officials recently added a second title fight when flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC) vs. Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) was rebooked after their UFC 215 matchup was scrapped earlier this month.

UFC 216 takes place Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FXX and UFC Fight Pass.

Despite Johnson going for a record 11th straight UFC title defense, an interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) has maintained headliner status at UFC 216. Johnson’s shot at history has second billing on the card.

To make room for Johnson vs. Borg on the five-fight main card, heavyweights Walt Harris (9-5 MMA, 2-4 UFC) and Mark Godbeer (12-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) have been bumped from the PPV portion of the lineup. However, they’re now in the featured UFC Fight Pass prelim spot and will close out the night’s early prelims.

The full UFC 216 lineup now includes:

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (FXX, 8 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC Fight Pass, 6 p.m. ET)
