UFC 215: Two Title Fights Set For Edmonton

Valentina Shevchenko

A pair of title fights have been made official for UFC 215, as Demetrious Johnson headlines and defends his flyweight title vs. Ray Borg.

Set for September 9 from Rogers Place in Edmonton, the card will also feature Amanda Nunes vs. Valentina Shevchenko for Nunes’ bantamweight belt.

Johnson will be seeking a record-breaking 11th consecutive title defense when he faces Borg. He is currently tied with Anderson Silva for the UFC record.
