Guide to UFC 215: Predictions, analysis and full coverage

Demetrious Johnson will look to break Anderson Silva's record for most consecutive title defenses against Ray Borg at UFC 215. Rod Mar for ESPN

UFC 215, taking place at the Rogers Center, in Edmonton on September 9, features two title fights and a multitude of intriguing matchups. Headlining the event is potentially the best pound-for-pound MMA fighter ever in Demetrious Johnson, who takes on rising contender Ray Borg for the flyweight belt. Just prior we finally get to see women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes meet top-ranked Valentina Shevchenko in the Octagon. This matchup was initially scheduled for UFC 214 last month but Nunes had to pull out at the last minute due to illness.

The top non-title fight of the night could be a heavyweight clash between former UFC champion Junior dos Santos and Francis Ngannou. Dos Santos, coming off a first round TKO loss to Stipe Miocic, will look to rebound against a fighter in Ngannou who has won nine in a row. Other contests of note include Neil Magny vs. Rafael dos Anjos, Jeremy Stephens against Gilbert Melendez, Henry Cejudo vs. Wilson Reis and Sara McMann vs. Ketlen Vieira.
