The card is top heavy.

And MMA hero Ferguson has revealed how close he was the atrocity and his reservations about competing so soon after the incident.

Dana White must have had flashbacks of the Jack-In-The-Box that tormented him as a child at the UFC 216 media day.

The first preliminary fight is available for UFC.com's Fight Pass members beginning at 6:15 p.m. The fight was quickly rescheduled and added as the co-main event for this weekend.

When asked if it might have an emotional effect on him during the fight, Lee admitted he didn't know.

Here are five classic contests you must watch before sitting down for UFC 216. Lee main card on UFC.TV for $59.99.

Demetrious Johnson (-1200) vs.

Despite his deep desire to walk out of T-Mobile Arena with the interim lightweight title around his waist, Ferguson isn't thinking too far ahead or turning this fight into a "life or death" situation in his head. Instead of defending the championship, McGregor entered the world of boxing, losing to Floyd Mayweather by 10th round TKO in August.

When incidents like the bathroom one occur, it is to build up interest in a fight. At 40 years old, Werdum is trying to bounce back from a slump in which he's lost two of his last three fights including a match against Alistair Overeem at UFC 213.

That's good enough for a normal lightweight fight, but title fights require that lightweights weigh-in at a maximum of 155 pounds if they're going to challenge for the belt, so it looked for a moment as if Lee wouldn't have the chance to contend.

Are the Los Angeles Rams for real?
But within 20 minutes of Jefferson's first practice back with Seattle on Wednesday he broke his hand in a pass rush drill. He's with the strength and conditioning guys now and really pushing to not just get in shape but get ready to so.

Lee, 25, (16-2) is on a similar streak, winning five consecutive bouts with four via stoppage. Lee fight card weighed in on Friday.

So what will Lee's game plan be for Ferguson? The fight was made shortly after that. Johnson has rarely been tested during this run and is a heavy favorite facing third-ranked flyweight Ray Borg (11-2).

These two arrogant, brash and incredibly talented lightweights grace the main event with another UFC interim belt on the line.

With a win tomorrow night, Johnson will enter the UFC record books as the champion who has successfully defended his title the most times consecutively. His elite grappling skills will also be put to the test at UFC 216 when he squares off against Cody Stamann, a fellow rising star who seeks to spoil the Frenchman's recent streak and make a statement of his own.
