Prediction: correct Johnson   correct Submission   wrong 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.

Prediction: correct Johnson   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 2  

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.

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.

DJ could defend 20 times and not have as great of a title reign as Anderson's was.

Flyweight is just kind of a bust.

Absolute dog****. Flyweight is deep as ****. DJ is just that good. The overall opposition DJ is facing is great. I don't get how people are still so blind and ignorant to this. I hate it. Especially when they try and pretend Anderson's streak was crazy good in comparison. Because it wasn't. Stop.

No, it was never deep, don't be mad at the messenger that it just doesn't get hype.

I don't get the ******** people claimimg flyweight is weak or Johnson's title defense record isn't as impressive as any long reigning champ's. Cejudo, Benevidez x2, John Dodson (Who KOed TJ in 1 round) x2, and Horiguchi they are all fantastic fighters whose skills match up easily with fighters in heavier divisions. Wilson Reis is no walk in the park and Johnson cruised by a Ali Bagautinov who was on EPO for their fight.

Rappinsoda, that's exactly the issue, it's not deep, it's a fairly new division with a few sharks and a bunch of guppies who have no business in there with the big shark. How taco mike calls flyweight stacked is crazy, especially since Dana and co were going to close the division not long ago.
