The UFC’s next PPV is taking place this Saturday night, October 2nd, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and it will feature two title fights at the top of the card. In the co-main event, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will look to cement himself as the greatest champion in UFC history when he attempts to defend his title successfully for the 11th consecutive time. Johnson is currently tied with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva for the prestigious record at 10 successful title defenses.
In the main event of the evening, lightweights Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will fight for the UFC lightweight interim title. More importantly, these two men will be attempting to put themselves in position for a fight against the top draw in combat sports today, current lightweight champion Conor McGregor, to unify the belts. McGregor has yet to defend a title inside of the Octagon.
