The UFC’s most dominant champion chases history on Saturday night.

Flyweight titleholder Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC) takes on challenger Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) in the UFC 216 co-headliner, which 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.

If Johnson wins – and he’s more than a 12-1 favorite – he’ll break Anderson Silva’s record for most consecutive UFC title defenses.

Ahead of the co-main event, UFC broadcasters Dan Hardy and John Gooden step “Inside the Octagon” to break down the fight.

Johnson and Borg were supposed to headline UFC 215 in September, but a Borg illness on the day of the weigh-ins forced the fight to be canceled and pushed to Las Vegas.

Check out Hardy and Gooden’s breakdown in the video above. And stay tuned for their breakdown of the main event interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee.
