[Fight Week!] UFC Fight Night 105: Fight Card and Video Preview for Halifax event

Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC

UFC Fight Night 105 will be held on February 19, 2017, at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

The event will be the second that the promotion has been hosted in Nova Scotia, and the first since UFC Fight Night 54 in October of 2014.

A heavyweight bout between former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos and Stefan Struve was originally expected to headline the event. However on January 12, Struve pulled out due to a shoulder injury. Despite having over six weeks before the event, promotion officials elected to remove Dos Santos.

Nearly two weeks later, it was announced that the new headliner would be a heavyweight matchup between Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne. The bout was scheduled to take place at UFC 208, but was moved a week later to headline this event.

The co-main event of the fight card features the middleweight debut of former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks who faces Hector Lombard.
