Ahead of next month’s UFC 216 pay-per-view — which is headlined by an interim title fight between top-ranked lightweight contenders Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee — the UFC has unveiled the official event poster.
The poster is a bit more artsy than we’ve come to see from the UFC design team in the past, so that’s a welcomed surprise from the fans.
In addition to the headlining Ferguson vs. Lee bout, Fabricio Werdum will be taking on Derrick Lewis in a bout slotted as the co-main event.
Lewis might find that he has a few new fans after his heroics in the aftermath of the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.
