PREVIEW: Mighty Mouse Chases History

The main storyline going into this weekend's fights is that the sole flyweight champion in UFC history, Demetrious Johnson, is going for his record eleventh straight defense. This time around he is going against Ray Borg, who is coming off a win against Jussier Formiga.
"Mighty Mouse" could be the best to ever do it. He very much could be. He has made every 125er look like a step below him throughout his tenure in the UFC, which have included Olympic-level athletes. If the division shows incredible competitiveness once DJ eventually leaves the sport, it will show how he was. Until that happens, just watch him do what he does best.
Ray Borg is going to try to pull off one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. Nothing on paper suggests he is the one to beat Mighty Mouse at 125, but he has complete belief in himself that he will nonetheless. The power of belief, paired with the skills to execute could just be enough.
Do you think Borg upsets him and is the second Flyweight champion?
