Prediction: Johnson  |  Submission  |  Round 2

Rebooked for 216. Adds some needed depth to a lackluster card. Now this one's not too bad. Not great, but not too bad. I guess we'll see if Borg really was just randomly ill or if it was the ole' weight cut woes.

I'm happy this fight is on 216. I mean they had Walt Harris and Mark Godbeer on the PPV. Meanwhile Leites/Tavares and Bibulatov/Moraga are tucked away on Fight Pass.

Yes it's official!

Good bye Harris vs Godbeer off the PPV.

No offense to those guys but they don't belong on a PPV Main Card.

I know the circumstances are odd, but it's hard to fathom the arguable GOAT being the co-main event to an interim title fight between two guys that aren't the biggest draws yet. 


There are a few potential reasons for that.

- Maybe Ferguson and Lee were already assured they'd be the main event. Though Dana has been known to change his mind on a whim when the situation changes.

- Perhaps this is Dana's way of punishing Borg. Pretty unfair to Mighty Mouse though.

- Dana just sees Ferguson/Lee as the bigger draw in the main event slot.

We may not 100% know the UFC's decision, so it could quite possibly be speculation. But the UFC site has DJ/Borg in the co-main slot currently, so that looks pretty decisive.

Prediction: Johnson  |  KO/TKO  |  Round 2

Cold hard truth is that (mostly) nobody cares about flyweight or DJ, it is a shame, but Ferguson vs Lee is actually going to draw people and is a far more competitive fight than DJ vs..Ray..Borg..ugh

@dtrain, when none of the participants in the title fights are big draws they just put the higher weight class higher up on the card.
