Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has a new main event for its upcoming UFC 206 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place Sat., Dec. 10, 2016 inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
You can thank Daniel Cormier for that.
With “DC” on the injured reserves, the world’s preeminent mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion elevated the featherweight showdown pitting Max Holloway against Anthony Pettis to the five-round main event.
And now it’s for the interim featherweight title.
That’s because the original keeper of the substitute strap, Jose Aldo, has been promoted to reigning champion — by way of stripped Irishman — and will await the winner of Holloway vs. Pettis.
“Blessed” and “Showtime” will help deconstruct all the recent fight card changes, while also previewing their 145-pound title fight, during today’s UFC 206 media conference call, which kicks off at 6 p.m. ET in the audio player above.
