[Fight Week!] UFC 206: Full fight card and preview for Toronto event

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

Originally scheduled to headline UFC 206 was a light heavyweight championship rematch between the current champion Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson, however on November 25, Cormier pulled out due to injury and the bout was scrapped.

Therefore, a featherweight bout between Max Holloway and former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis was shifted to the headlining spot and  promoted to an interim UFC Featherweight Championship status. The current champion (as well as lightweight champion) Conor McGregor vacated his title and former champion/current interim titleholder José Aldo became the undisputed champion.

The co-main event features a welterweight bout between Donald Cerrone vs. Matt Brown.

Cerrone was scheduled to face Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 205, However, on the day of the weigh-ins, Gastelum did not make an attempt to formally weigh in as he was well over the 171 lbs limit for the fight and the bout was scrapped. Consequently, Cerrone was quickly rescheduled against Matt Brown for this event.

Also featured on the main card is a featherweight contest between Cub Swanson and rising prospect Doo Ho Choi and a middleweight bout between Tim Kennedy and Kelvin Gastelum.
