UFC 215 has received two title fights, as the promotion has announced that flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson will face Ray Borg, and that bantamweight champ Amanda Nuns will take on Valentina Shevchenko.

The upcoming card will take place on September 9th in Edmonton, Alberta.

Johnson will be looking to set a new title defense record of 11, when he takes on the rising Borg.

Nunes and Shevchenko, meanwhile, were supposed to fight at UFC 213 earlier this month. Nunes was forced to withdraw on short notice, however, due to illness. The 135 champ earned a decision win over Shevchenko in March, 2016.
