On Sunday the UFC released their official poster for UFC 215.
UFC 215 will be hoping to build off the popularity of the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor boxing match on August 26th. The UFC’s first Pay Per View after the “Money Fight” will be headlined by two title fights and a possible record breaking performance.
The main event of the evening will be the flyweight title fight. Champion Demetrious Johnson will be attempting to set the record for most consecutive title defenses in the UFC. He will be defending his title for the 11th time when he faces Ray Borg. Johnson enters the fight off a title win over Wilson Reis. Borg enters the contest on a two fight winning streak. He has back to back wins over Louis Smolka and Jussier Formiga.
The other title fight is the co-main event. UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes will rematch Valentina Shevchenko. Nunes beat Shevchenko at UFC 196 by unanimous decision. The two were set to face each other at UFC 213, but Nunes was removed from the contest hours before the fight due to illness.
Another key matchup on the card is the match between former UFC heavyweight champion, Junior dos Santos and Francis NGannou.
