Tony Ferguson Triangles Kevin Lee at UFC 216; Demetrious Johnson Armbar Steals Show

Your move, Conor McGregor . “The Ultimate Fighter 13” winner Tony Ferguson laid claim to the interim Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight title, as he submitted Kevin Lee with a triangle choke in the third round of their UFC 216 headliner on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Lee (16-3, 9-3 UFC) conceded defeat 4:02 into Round 3, his five-fight winning streak having run its course. Ferguson (23-3, 13-1 UFC) now awaits word from McGregor, who has not appeared inside the Octagon since he defeated Eddie Alvarez for the undisputed lightweight crown in November. Lee pushed “El Cucuy” to the limit in the first round, where he delivered a takedown, climbed to mount and unleashed a torrent of punches and elbows. The barrage might have finished a lesser man. Ferguson shrugged. Lee’s pace slowed noticeably in the second, and he continued to deteriorate physically in the third. There, he executed two takedowns but lacked the energy to consolidate them with damage. Ferguson nearly tapped him with an armbar before catching the triangle and eliciting the tapout.

UFC 216 ‘Ferguson vs. Lee’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Bobby Green vs. Lando Vannata Round 1 Green sticks a jab with his first punch of the fight, then denies Vannata's early attempt to tie up. Vannata gets inside behind a right hand, but Green pushes him away again. Green scores with a left hook in an exchange, gets a body shot in return, and now it's Green looking for the clinch on the fence. Vannata breaks out of the clinch and nearly lands a head kick. Seconds later, a body shot stings Green, and Vannata puts the hurt on him with a right hand behind the ear. Green looks finished as Vannata pounds on him, but referee Herb Dean is in a poor position to see Green's condition. Green comes to and gets to his knees, and Vannata drills his still-downed opponent with a knee to the face. Referee Dean calls the doctor into the cage to check on Green, who says he's good to continue. Vannata is docked one point for the foul. The fight resumes with a takedown from Green, who gets snared in a guillotine as he drives Vannata to the canvas. Vannata keeps hold of the choke as the lightweights stand back up and fight to the fence. Green pulls his head free with 1:45 on the clock, changes levels and looks to take down Vannata again.

Darrion Caldwell Unseats Eduardo Dantas, Takes Bantamweight Belt in Bellator 184 Headliner

Darrion Caldwell fought his fight. The onetime NCAA wrestling champion became the fifth bantamweight titleholder in Bellator MMA history, as he laid claim to a unanimous decision over Eduardo Dantas in the Bellator 184 headliner on Friday at the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma. All three cageside judges scored it for Caldwell (11-1, 8-1 Bellator MMA): 48-47, 48-47 and 50-45. Dantas (20-5, 10-2 Bellator MMA) enjoyed success in bursts -- he mounted the Alliance MMA rep in the third round and fished for a rear-naked choke in the fourth -- but they were few and far between. Caldwell repeatedly pinned him to the fence, killing valuable time and momentum amid building frustration. He executed a belly-to-back suplex in the first round, dropped Dantas to a knee with a standing elbow in the second and opened a cut near his left eye with some ground-and-pound in the fourth. Needing a finish, Dantas failed in his bid to turn the tide in Round 5. The loss snapped a four-fight winning streak for Dantas. In the featherweight co-main event, Roufusport ’s Emmanuel Sanchez secured his signature victory and submitted two-time champion Daniel Straus with a third-round triangle choke.

UFC 216 Bonuses: Johnson, Vannata, Green, Moraga Garner $50K Awards

They’re going to be talking about Demetrious Johnson ’s submission of Ray Borg for quite some time. “Mighty Mouse” received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for his record-breaking victory over Borg in the UFC 216 co-main event on Saturday night — and he authored a serious “Submission of the Year” candidate in the process. With time winding down in the fifth frame, Johnson executed a belly-to-back suplex, released Borg in midair and transitioned to an armbar to earn a tapout 3:15 into the period. Elsewhere, Lando Vannata and Bobby Green earned “Fight of Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their wild lightweight scrap. Vannata appeared to be on the verge of a finish in the opening stanza, but Green was able to recover after the Jackson-Wink product was deducted a point for an illegal knee. For the final two rounds, the two combatants went back-and-forth, ultimately battling to a majority draw. Finally, John Moraga pocketed the evening’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award for his first-round knockout of Russian prospect Magomed Bibulatov .

Matches to Make After UFC 216

The superlatives in relation to Demetrious Johnson have long since been exhausted. “Mighty Mouse” retained the Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight title by submitting Ray Borg with a spectacular fifth-round armbar in the UFC 216 co-main event on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. Victimized in one of the great finishes in UFC history and the clear frontrunner for “Submission of the Year,” Borg yielded to the record-setting champion 3:05 into Round 5. In what may have been his most dominant performance to date, Johnson stuffed the stat sheet at the expense of his young challenger. According to preliminary FightMetric data, he outlanded Borg by an almost unfathomable 172-22 margin in total strikes, went 8-for-8 on takedowns and executed a career-high 19 guard passes. The two flyweights combined to land 54 significant strikes in the first three rounds; Johnson accounted for 49 of them. This does not even mention the rear waistlock slam to armbar transition with which he seamlessly finished Borg. With the victory, Johnson surpasses former middleweight champion Anderson Silva ’s all-time record for consecutive UFC title defenses.

Julia Budd to Defend Featherweight Crown vs. Arlene Blencowe in Bellator 189 Main Event

Julia Budd will defend her featherweight title for the first time against Arlene Blencowe in the Bellator 189 headliner on Dec. 1. Promotion officials announced the pairing on Friday night. Bellator 189 takes place at Winstar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla., and will also see Chris Honeycutt face Rafael Lovato Jr. in the middleweight co-main event. The card will air on Spike at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, with prelims streaming immediately prior on Bellator.com and the Bellator Mobile App. Budd and Blencowe initially squared off at Bellator 162, where Budd captured a majority decision. The Strikeforce veteran then captured the inaugural 145-pound belt with a fourth-round technical knockout triumph against Marloes Coenen at Bellator 174 on March 3 for her eighth consecutive victory. After losing to Budd, Blencowe has won three straight fights. Most recently, the 34-year-old Australian took a split verdict over Sinead Kavanagh at Bellator 182 on April 25. “Angerfist” is 10-6 as a professional overall, including a 3-2 mark under the Bellator MMA banner.
