Immortality! UFC 216 promo video preview for Demetrious Johnson vs Ray Borg title fight on Oct. 7 in Las Vegas

UFC 216 is set to pop off from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Oct. 7, 2017 and will feature an interim Lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee.

While that’s a great headlining fight that will not only crown a champion but also likely provide Conor McGregor’s next opponent, the co-main event is just as good, as Flyweight champion and pound-four-pound great Demetrious Johnson will attempt to make history by earning his eleventh straight title defense against Ray Borg.

The duo was initially setup to fight at UFC 215, but after Borg fell ill, the promotion canceled the title fight and rescheduled it for a month later. Now, Johnson will look to separate himself from Anderson Silva with one more title defense, while Ray looks to shock the world by preventing that from happening.

Also, Derrick Lewis will look to get back on the winning track when he collides against Fabricio Werdum in a hard-hitting Heavyweight affair which could have major title implications.

Expect more video likes this one to be released as the event draws nearer, until then click here to see the most up-to-date news regarding UFC 215.
