UFC 216: Demetrious Johnson looks to make history and cement his legacy

Demetrious Johnson Wilson Reis

A Las Vegas local, Lee has taken advantage of the new UFC Perfomance Institute, a facility that has grown increasingly popular with the fighters since it first opened its doors back in May.

The first time Ferguson was scheduled to fight for the interim belt was in UFC 209's co-main event against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The card is top heavy.

Here is everything you need to know about UFC 216. The live stream begins at 8 p.m. ET.

Based on TV ratings and reported pay-for-view buys, UFC fans have never exactly warmed up to the smallest men's division and the 31-year-old phenom who has ruled the 125-pounders for five years with his speed, agility, elusiveness and cardio. Lee, ask your TV provider.

"You can't stop living your life". Lee main card on UFC.TV for $59.99.

Patriots at Buccaneers: Highlights, score and recap
The former No. 1 overall pick discusses his second career as a winemaker and takes viewers on a tour of his vineyard. Bucs QB Jameis Winston coming off season-best 332-yard, three-TD, zero-interception performance against Giants .

Johnson has held the UFC flyweight title since September 22, 2012, the longest reigning current champion in the UFC.

The episode is especially troubling for Ferguson, the Orange County fighter and No. 2-rated lightweight seeking the UFC's interim lightweight belt in Conor McGregor's absence. Instead of defending the championship, McGregor entered the world of boxing, losing to Floyd Mayweather by 10th round TKO in August. As UFC 216 Embedded 2 all-access, brings us behind-the-scenes leading up to the two title fights. He flew to California to promote the UFC 216 fight on Sunday, and did not learn the full scope of the attack until Monday.

Another shocker was the UFC announcement that, about 20 minutes before the weigh-ins deadline, lightweight Nik Lentz was unable to fight because of medical issues, likely due to a hard weight cut.

Lee is 16-2 overall, won five consecutive bouts and nine of his last ten.

The decision from the UFC to hand the interim shot to Lee has been questioned by many who believe other contenders are more worthy in the 155lb division.

If Lee can't cut the final pound, the fight could be scrapped if Ferguson declines to accept the fight. The fight was made shortly after that. The fight was originally supposed to take place in September but Borg fell ill prior to the contest. Lee has decent stand-up skills but his strengths undoubtedly lie in his wrestling and Jiu-Jitsu; he is a wizard on the mat but so is Ferguson. Some of the sport's brightest prospects are set to continue their journeys at the card, and Demetrious Johnson may break Anderson Silva's record of ten consecutive title defenses when he squares off against Ray Borg.
