Dustin Ortiz replaces John Moraga to face Zach Makovsky at UFC 206

An injury to John Moraga has forced him off the UFC 206 fight card.

Dustin Ortiz has officially replaced Moraga to fight Zach Makovsky in Toronto. The UFC announced the bout change.

UFC 206 will be held on December 10, 2016, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

A UFC light heavyweight title rematch between the current champion Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson is expected to headline the event. The pairing met previously in May 2015 at UFC 187 with Cormier winning the fight (and the vacant title) via submission in the third round.

Ortiz is riding a two-fight losing streak, the first of his career. The two losses, both came via decision to Jussier Formiga and Wilson Reis.

Former Bellator bantamweight champ Makovsky is also on a two-fight losing streak, to John Dodson and Joseph Benavidez.
