Demetrious Johnson and Ray Borg re-booked for UFC 216

Johnson and Borg will try it again in Las Vegas at UFC 216

Demetrious Johnson and Ray Borg were supposed to meet this past Saturday at UFC 215, but Ray Borg fell ill and was removed from the contest. Whether or not it was a weight-cut issue or not, the simple fact remains that the fight was scrapped last minute, and we didn’t get the fight.

With one more successful defense Johnson breaks the all-time record for consecutive title defenses with eleven. For Ray Borg, it is an opportunity for redemption. Just reaching the cage would serve to silence a lot of detractors who were very vocal about Borg pulling out. The UFC 216 card looks great, and this fight adds to the awesome level.
