Thus far we’ve seen flyweight king Demetrious Johnson out-wrestle and Olympic wrestler, out-grapple a jiu-jitsu master, and out-strike a striker. So really, whatever happens in the cage at UFC 216 between the champ and challenger Ray Borg is likely a foregone conclusion.
Borg has got nothing but toughness on his side, and toughness doesn’t mean much when an opponent can do whatever the heck he wants to you.
But Johnson needs a paycheck and Borg needs a paycheck, and we need some sore of activity at the top of the 125-pound weight class, so here we are.
If any of this has made you less than motivated to tune in to UFC 216, the UFC understands. They’ve put together this Countdown vid to help you along.
