The main event for UFC 216 will be an interim lightweight title bout between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee.
This is not the fight we deserve, but it’s the best the UFC can do, and that’s okay.
You see, the champ is someone named Conor McGregor, and if you haven’t been keeping track, McGregor has transcended the sport to become a very rich demigod. Meanwhile, worthy contender Khabib Nurmagomedov can’t seem to make it to the cage when contracted to do so. That means we get Ferguson – who is also worthy – and Lee, who maybe isn’t so worthy.
But we’re going to make the most if it, right? We’re going to get excited about what may happen on October 7, right?
