UFC 216 fight card

Here's how the UFC-record 10 consecutive title defenses of reigning flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and former middleweight champion Anderson Silva compare. Johnson will attempt to break the record at UFC 216 against Ray Borg on Oct. 7, 2017, in Las Vegas.

Demetrious Johnson is the only flyweight champion in UFC history since the promotion instituted the 125-pound division in 2012.

On Saturday, Oct. 7 at UFC 216 in Las Vegas, Johnson attempts a second bit of history: the most consecutive title defenses in UFC history. Johnson is tied with middleweight Anderson Silva with 10 straight title defenses.

He goes for No. 11 against Ray Borg in the co-main event, which was rescheduled from UFC 215 in September.
