If Kevin Lee thought Tony Ferguson was “weird” before, wait until he sees what the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) marketing department did with “El Cucuy” for the official UFC 216 poster.
At least they didn’t bungle the weight class this time.
The bickering lightweights will collide for the division’s interim strap at next month’s pay-per-view (PPV) event in Las Vegas, Nevada (details), with the winner expected to face Conor McGregor later this year.
Or perhaps 2018, depending on this crazy claim.
Also featured on the UFC 216 poster is the heavyweight co-main event between Fabricio Werdum and Derrick Lewis. Both “Vai Cavalo” and “The Black Beast” are hoping to stay afloat in the 265-pound title hunt.
In addition, Jessica Eye and Paige VanZant will help the promotion usher in the newly-created women’s 125-pound weight class, while Beneil Dariush and Evan Dunham fight to remain relevant at 155 pounds.
Less than one month to go!
