UFC 216 Predictions: Who Leaves Las Vegas With Championship Gold? (Slideshow)

Demetrious vs Ray Borg UFC 215

Demetrious Johnson to win by submission in Rd3. But when they say "the one and only", it rings true. Ray Borg for the flyweight title.

So how is it that Johnson has been overlooked for so long?

Interim lightweight title contender Tony Ferguson tries on his fight night wardrobe, and fellow headliner Kevin Lee visits a children's cancer center.

With the extra hour to eliminate the extra pound, Lee (16-2) had no trouble making weight on his second attempt.

After an extremely solemn week in Las Vegas, many people planned to turn to this weekend's Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view to find a way to temporarily remove their minds off Sunday night's tragedy. Luckily Ferguson's wife decided at the last minute not to attend the music festival, however it was a fear that has haunted him throughout the week. Lewis is tough to put away, packs a wallop and will fire something off that surprises Werdum and knocks him out, probably fairly early into the fight. He's dominating a weight class. "'OHHHHH! Watch out!'" Felder said.

"If not maybe he should go back, take a fight vs Diaz or something and show that you can beat the man because as far as I'm concerned he has lost three of his last four fights". So I'm going to bring a hurricane to his ass, and I don't think he'll be able to weather it.

"It would mean a lot", said Johnson. I like to surround myself with people like that.

UFC boss Dana White has donated £750,000 to help victims and urged much-needed holiday makers not to boycott the city.

Italy vs Macedonia UEFA World Cup Qualifying
Goalscorer Giorgio Chiellini has urged Italy fans to remain behind their nation as the Azzurri head into the uncertainty of the World Cup qualifying playoffs.

He has had his recent battles with the UFC about getting his due.

That remains Ferguson's lone loss in the organization, and he was supposed to fight the unbeaten Nurmagomedov (24-0) for the interim belt at UFC 209 on March 4, but his opponent suffered from an extreme weight cut and was forced to withdraw.

The 25-year-old MI native, who's aiming for his sixth victory in the space of 18 months, stopped Francisco Trinaldo in March and Michael Chiesa in June - both by submission. "I'm out here whooping [butts] and cleaning up!"

Saturday, however, elevates Johnson into a new stratosphere.

This is a terrific fight and should be a really fun way to kick off the main card. I always fight for myself and for my family, not for the fans.

"Saturday is going to be fantastic; it's going to be awesome", said Ferguson. If you wish to see what the 24-year-old combatant is all about, then this is the flawless fight to watch. That's a plus for me. Until we make a change in the rules, that's going to be what it is. There's no one pound leeway in title fights, so in order to be eligible for the belt, he must tip the scales at 155 lbs or lower. I'm not aiming at him. "I'm looking to finish", he said. "I ain't no bitch".

"He's so good and so great, when anybody does anything to him?" The co-main event is another title bout as Demetrious Johnson looks to make history when he defends the flyweight championship against Ray Borg.
