Kevin Lee Has Missed Weight, Interim Title Challenge In Jeopardy

UFC 216 Kevin Lee fails to make championship weight NSAC grants him 1 hour to lose 1 pound

Ferguson weighed in at 155 pounds, the lightweight limit, while Lee came in at the very end of the weigh-in and tipped the scales at 156. Is anyone primed for an upset based on the betting lines?

"I'm happy the UFC got it rescheduled super-fast", Johnson said.

For me, the former Ultimate Fighter victor is more seasoned, more savvy and more gritty.

When asked if he would rather not fight on Saturday, Ferguson said, "I have to be professional about it".

The distinguished official was in charge of the controversial rounds with Paulie Malignaggi and wants to see the two men do it for real.

UFC 216 headliner Tony Ferguson will compete for the organization's interim lightweight title less than a week after the horrific incident took place.

Now he has the champion's attention, with McGregor stating at a Q&A in Glasgow this past weekend that he's going to be watching the interim title fight closely to see whether the victor impresses enough to prove that they should be next in line to fight him, but the way Lee sees it, he is the one that will dictate if and when a potential fight between them would take place. I'm fighting Tony. Nobody wanted to fight Tony. He beat Chiesa at his own game and will now face Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight title this Saturday.

Aside from being two of the best fighters in the world, both men in the headline act are incredibly intense and interesting characters. At 40 years old, Werdum is trying to bounce back from a slump in which he's lost two of his last three fights including a match against Alistair Overeem at UFC 213.

"I'm going in there for myself".

"And if I do get disqualified for any reason, it was a $10 million fine".

"I had a boxing referee in Ireland, a great boxing referee in Ireland and then Joe Cortez in Vegas, every single spar", McGregor said. "A lot of people don't understand that a lot of the champions and big fighters make most of their money on these big mega cards". If you have just recently become aware of Kevin, I would advise you to check out this world-class performance before he challenges for his first title at UFC 216.

Although Ferguson resides in Orange County, Calif., the tragedy may have resonated the strongest of any fighter on the card with him. "A lot of these guys that work in the industry have tough hours so I think everyone will bounce back pretty quick".

"He's got to start barking at me as I'm not really that impressed".
