Lee, 25, has won 9 of his last 10 fights and currently owns a 5-fight win streak. Ferguson is on a 9-fight win streak and has won 6 performance bonuses in that run.
In the co-main event, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will look to defend his belt for an eleventh time when he faces Ray Borg. If Johnson is successful, he’ll surpass Anderson Silva for most successful title defenses in the UFC record books.
