Tony Ferguson Submits Kevin Lee With A Slick Triangle At UFC 216 To Win The Interim Lightweight Title
Demetrious Johnson surpassed former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva on Saturday night, as he became the sole holder of the record for most consecutive UFC title defences by submitting Ray Borg in the fifth round to retain the promotion's flyweight title in Las Vegas.
Some rumors suggest that the UFC is going to use the interim title victor to lowball Nate in the negotiations for the trilogy fight.
Dana White has insisted he wants Conor McGregor to fight interim champion Tony Ferguson on his return, denying claims Nate Diaz is in pole position to face the Irishman.
Lee started the fight the stronger of the two, dropping Ferguson, dominating him on the mat and battering him with ground and pound as the round concluded. "He's never mentioned my name, not one time during this whole entire time".
"I'll ankle-pick him. No problem".
On Friday morning, everyone makes weight on their first try except one fighter, who needs an extra hour to hit the championship limit.
McGregor said that he will wait for the results at UFC 216 before making any decisions on his first fight back in the UFC. "It's not the fight that makes sense - It's the fight that has to happen".
"If you want me to stick around, if you want me to keep doing what I'm doing, let's talk. I lifted him up and snatched his arm and did it". He even wanted to allow Lee to take him down, so he could work off of his back to get a submission.
And, despite finding himself on the receiving end of a huge slam early in the third round, Ferguson took over, nearly finishing the 24-year-old with an armbar before eventually forcing the submission via a triangle choke. If Ferguson is to be believed, the execution of his plan is eerily reminiscent of McGregor, who gained a "Mystic Mac" alter ego in the UFC for predicting precisely what would occur in his fights.
"The staph was bothering me throughout the weight cut", Lee said.
Ferguson said he would be ready to fight McGregor as soon as "next week".
