UFC DEBUTS IN EDMONTON WITH TWO THRILLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHTS FOR UFC 215

UFC will arrive in Edmonton with a pair of blockbuster championship bouts. UFC 215 will see No.1 pound-for-pound fighter and ESPY Fighter of the Year winner, Demetrious Johnson, Washington, USA), look to make history when he battles No.3-ranked contender Ray Borg.

UFC’s only flyweight champion, Johnson captured the belt at UFC 152 in Toronto in 2012. Currently tied with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva for most consecutive title defenses at 10, “Mighty Mouse” has the opportunity to set a new benchmark on Canadian soil. In his last appearance, he secured a stunning submission victory over Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Wilson Reis. Standing in Johnson’s way is talented grappler Borg. Since joining the UFC roster in 2014, “The Tazmexican Devil” has picked up impressive wins against Jussier Formiga, Louis Smolka and Chris Kelades

UFC 215 co-main event features the highly anticipated women’s bantamweight championship fight between Amanda Nunes and No.1 contender Valentina Shevchenko.

Following her first-round submission win over Miesha Tate to capture the bantamweight championship, Nunes scored an impressive 48-second TKO win over Ronda Rousey in December. Shevchenko has gone on a tear since dropping a close decision to Nunes at UFC 196 last year. In her two most recent outings, she out-struck former UFC and boxing champion Holly Holm, before submitting talented grappler Julianna Pena. Nunes and Shevchenko were originally set to meet at UFC 213 in July, but the bout was postponed after Nunes became ill.

UFC 215 will also feature the following fights:

UFC 215 will be available live on pay-per-view on Saturday, September 9 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT
