Ferguson-Lee Positioned As UFC 216 Main Event

While the UFC 215 main event of Demetrious Johnson defending his flyweight title against Ray Borg was shifted to UFC 216 on October 7th. It seems according to a new poster for the event at the T-Mobile Arena  the interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will be the headline fight

A lightweight interim title fight between Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) has been tabbed the headliner of UFC 216.

The event takes place Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FXX and UFC Fight Pass.

And while the UFC has not confirmed this officially both UFC.com and the aforementioned poster have Ferguson and Lee in the top spot.
