This marks the second big fight UFC 206 lost this week: On Monday, Tim Kennedy revealed on The MMA Hour that he was in need of a new opponent after the Ontario Athletic Commission refused to license Rashad Evans. The UFC is hoping to book Kennedy vs. Kelvin Gastelum, but that fight is not official yet either.

UFC 206 is scheduled to take place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. A featherweight bout between Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis is currently scheduled as the co-main event of UFC 206. The rest of the main card features Donald Cerrone vs. Matt Brown and Cub Swanson vs. Doo Ho Choi.
