Watch UFC 216 Live Stream Mickey Gall has never fought a professional fight. Sage was the first real fighter that he ever fought, and even Sage don’t deserve to be there, so he ain’t fought no pro fights. Why give him the airtime over guys that already got like eight, nine, 10 UFC 216 Main Card, and they’re real fights against real fighters that don’t get as much airtime? You’ve just got these big fights and just because people hear his name, they think (he’s really good). It’s bullsht, you know? I’m not going to knock the hustle, but people are going to talk about what you put out. So if you make 10 articles about Mickey Gall, and you don’t make a single article about nobody else, then of course they’re going to be buzzing about him, of course they’re going to be talking about him. He ain’t doing it on his own.
While the stakes in the Oct. 7 co-main event remain as significant as they were last month in Edmonton before the contest was unfortunately called off, the only questions the champion and challenger faced were about the illness that sidelined Borg and what might happen if he were to show up and miss weight next weekend.
The diagnosis? I don’t know, I’m not a doctor, Borg said when prompted for specifics about the bug that prompted last month’s bout to be scuttled. The UFC doctor told me that I had a flu virus and that was it. I was throwing up I had the shakes, I had the shivers and it wasn’t like no weight cutting type sickness. I just got the flu.
While the penultimate pair of fighters to cross the threshold into the Octagon at the first of three UFC 216 Live events scheduled for October kept things short, sweet and to the point, their lightweight counterparts took a more verbose approach to things on Thursday.
Interim title challengers Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee were more than happy to go back-and-forth throughout the call, interrupting each other and hammering home their respective thoughts on what their opponent brings to the table, what makes them the better man and how things will play out once they finally hit the cage next weekend in Las Vegas.
UFC 216 Live Stream takes place on Saturday, October 7 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and airs exclusively on Pay-Per-View.
Of course, a lot has happened since Lee’s comments, as he is now the one getting tons of press and opportunities inside the cage, as he is set to headline UFC 216 against Tony Ferguson in an interim Lightweight title fight on Oct. 7, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
As for Gall, he will return to the cage after close to a year away from action at 216 UFC when he faces off against Randy Brown on Nov. 4, 2017 inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
