UFC 216: Several streaks on the line on Saturday

CONOR MCGREGOR is one of the most successful fighters in UFC today. The pair were scheduled to met at UFC 215, but Borg was forced out of the bout due to illness during fight week.

Kevin Lee is the latest fighter to almost suffer from a bad stretch of UFC weigh in problems.

"He just got outwrestled by a man that's this tall (gestures with his hands), a boxer and is 30-40 pounds lighter than me, so he has got to show me a little bit more", Lee told MMA Fighting.

That's especially true because of the spectre of Conor McGregor that hangs over the fight. I want to make sure that my kid doesn't have to fight.

He spoke of the respect he has for his opponent in the build up to the fight, saying: 'I've said this from the beginning that Tony (Ferguson) is the toughest fight out there for me. "And I don't care, "Oh well, he's in this division" ... it doesn't matter!" said UFC lightweight Paul Felder, who will be making his Fox Sports studio analyst debut Saturday for UFC 216. Nik Lentz, who had issues with cutting weight, never came to the scale and was pulled from the show, meaning his fight with Will Brooks is off.

Google Home Mini preview: The macaron-shaped sweet taste of Google Assistant

Aside from being two of the best fighters in the world, both men in the headline act are incredibly intense and interesting characters.

A flyweight fight between Marco Beltran and Matt Schnell will be moved up on the card and act as the featured preliminary fight. That's the thing about fighting - you can't hide who you really are.

"Saturday is going to be wonderful; it's going to be awesome", said Ferguson.

Ferguson, who now possesses the highest win percentage in UFC history with a 12-1 record in the octagon, goes into tonight's bout as the favourite (10/23 with Ladbrokes at the time of writing). In July, women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes fell ill, scrapping that main event, and then flyweight Ray Borg fell ill in his weight cut last month. Some of the sport's brightest prospects are set to continue their journeys at the card, and Demetrious Johnson may break Anderson Silva's record of ten consecutive title defenses when he squares off against Ray Borg. "Talking doesn't do anything when fists are flying at you".

The concluding bout of the prelims features former BAMMA two-weight champion Tom Duquesnoy take on Cody Stamann in a bantamweight bout. It's going to be Francis Ngannou.
