MMA UK Staff Picks – UFC 216

MMA UK Staff Picks – UFC 216

UFC 216 takes place from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night that sees two world titles up for grabs, plus, the UK’s own Mark Godbeer returns to the Octagon as Bridgewater’s finest looks to climb the Heavyweight ranks. In the main event, Tony Ferguson will square off against Kevin Lee for the interim lightweight championship, with the winner placing himself firmly in line for the coveted ‘red panty’ fight with Conor McGregor to unify the lightweight title. History could be made in the co-main event as MMA’s pound for pound best fighter on the planet, Demetrious Johnson, attempts to defend his UFC title for a record breaking eleventh time – overtaking Anderson Silva’s current record of ten consecutive title defences. In the first instalment of our new Staff Picks series, MMAUK have mustered together some of our finest writers and most glamorous presenters to give you their opinions on how the night will pan out.
