If Kevin Lee wouldn't have been able to make weight, Tony Ferguson woulda fought him at UFC 216 anyway.so says Tony's manager. Tony Ferguson picked up the win with his trademark D'Arce choke, but it did not come easy, and it is easy to say that this contest earned its "Fight of the Night" honors. On Thursday, he told Shaun Al-Shatti of MMA Fighting that he had approximately 19 pounds to lose in less than 24 hours. Vannata nearly picked up the victory here, and grew massively in popularity, making himself one of the most must-see attractions in the UFC lightweight division overnight.

"I went home, did what I needed to do to get healthy and took the last two weeks to become the best fighter I can be", Borg said.

Both are seasoned fighters who have fought at a high-level before, but I do favor Faria to get the win here, having had more time to prepare as well as being the better fighter on the mat, potentially leading to a late stoppage or win on the scorecards.

Lee went onto criticise McGregor for his recent defeat to Floyd Mayweather, insisting that he was unimpressed by him losing to a boxer who is 30 to 40 pounds lighter than him.

Ferguson has already been arguing for that for the victor on Saturday, as McGregor mulls his return to MMA after a highly popular crossover boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in late August.

In the immediate aftermath of his bout with Nurmagomedov being scuttled for a third time, questions about when the former Ultimate Fighter victor would return to action and whom he would face were plentiful. I'm just glad they didn't go, man.

A fighter dying during a weight cut is exactly what the UFC needs to avoid.

A flyweight fight between Marco Beltran and Matt Schnell will be moved up on the card and act as the featured preliminary fight. Lee main card on UFC.TV for $59.99. "That's what really needs to happen".

Apparently Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier are badmouthing each other about some sort of nonsense. "Talking doesn't do anything when fists are flying at you".

Earlier Friday, Borg made a point of showing his readiness for Saturday's long shot attempt to stop UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson's record run of title defenses by stepping on the scale first.

The former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum is busy taking over the UFC Performance Institute. It's going to be Francis Ngannou.
