UFC 216: Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee Discuss Interim Title Fight

Conor McGregor's Threat To Nate Diaz Ahead Of The Potential Trilogy Fight Tony Ferguson Submits Kevin Lee With A Slick Triangle At UFC 216 To Win The Interim Lightweight Title

UFC President Dana White said McGregor will face newly-crowned lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in a championship unification bout with a date TBD.

"Conor McGregor poses no threat to me, especially when I hit him with the jab, he's going to be running away like Katsunori Kikuno did and I'll be chasing after his ass like a cornerback".

Lee also talked about the fight with Rogan. He's not mentioned my name one time.

Last night, in the co-main event of the stacked UFC 216, Ray Borg stepped into the cage with perhaps the greatest fighter to ever do it: UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

McGregor said that he will wait for the results at UFC 216 before making any decisions on his first fight back in the UFC.

'Obviously, Conor had an opportunity to make a lot of money [against Mayweather], and I felt it was my duty to try and make that fight happen. I'm the matador, he's the bull.

"If you want me to stick around, if you want me to keep doing what I'm doing, let's talk".

Ferguson claimed everything that happened was part of his strategy. After almost submitting a fading Lee (16-3) in Round 3 with an armbar, Ferguson locked in a triangle choke to force the tap at 4:02. He even wanted to allow Lee to take him down, so he could work off of his back to get a submission.

Whose version would win out in a fight between two fighters who swear by visualization?

Lee said he's strongly considering a move up to welterweight (170 pounds), but also pushed for the formation of 165-pound weight class. There's a lingering trilogy fight with Nate Diaz, as well as an unsettled rivalry with retired boxing champion Paulie Mallignaggi. White stood behind everything Ferguson said in regards to McGregor.

Depending on the results at UFC 216, the victor could have an extended medical suspension, making a quick turnaround to fight McGregor unlikely. "He's going to be in checkmate soon", Ferguson told the media at the presser. "Defend or vacate motherfucker".
