LAS VEGAS – Move over, Conor McGregor. A second UFC lightweight champion is coming.

An interim title fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee has been booked for UFC 216, UFC President Dana White told reporters on Tuesday.

White said he was unsure if the bout between Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) would serve as the headliner for the pay-per-view event, which takes place Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

With the addition, the latest UFC 216 card now includes:

Tony Ferguson vs. Kevin Lee – for interim lightweight title
Will Brooks vs. Nik Lentz
Bobby Green vs. Lando Vannata
Beneil Dariush vs. Evan Dunham
Thales Leites vs. Brad Tavares
Magomed Bibulatov vs. John Moraga
Marco Beltran vs. Matt Schnell
Mark Godbeer vs. Walt Harris
Jessica Eye vs. Paige VanZant

Should be a great fight but it's hard to pick against Tony. He should have the standup and jitsu advantage

ANOTHER INTERIM!?! What in the actual fuck, UFC..a (rightfully) deserved slap in the face to Khabib for not making weight and a bigger slap to those ranked above the #7 guy: Diaz, Gathje, Barboza & Alvarez.

Nice fight, but this card needs another substantial fight. It's weak.

Looks more like a Fight Night card. Pretty lackluster for a PPV. Good luck getting buys for that, UFC.
