UFC 206 is need of a new main event.

Light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been forced to withdraw from his Dec. 10 title fight against Anthony Johnson due to an injury, MMA Fighting has confirmed with multiple sources. The promotion is currently working on a new headliner, however, nothing is finalized just yet. The plan, as of right now, is to keep Johnson on the card.

Not suprised.

Cormier hasnt defended since last oct of 2015.

Time for a interim title for rumble.

Push it back to 208 anaheim.

If Rumble fought for an interim belt, it would be on this card. This card is hot garbage, without a title fight this is the type of ppv card that would either get cancelled altogether or turned into a fight night.

The UFC 206 card now includes:

Anthony Johnson vs. TBA
Max Holloway vs. Anthony Pettis
Matt Brown vs. Donald Cerrone
Tim Kennedy vs. TBA
Dooho Choi vs. Cub Swanson
Misha Cirkunov vs. Nikita Krylov
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Drew Dober
Valerie Letourneau vs. Viviane Pereira
John Makdessi vs. Lando Vannata
Rustam Khabilov vs. Jason Saggo
Mitch Gagnon vs. Matthew Lopez
Zach Makovsky vs. Dustin Ortiz
Emil Meek vs. Jordan Mein

It wouldn't surprise me if they took Cruz/Garbrandt and moved it from UFC 207 to UFC 206 to try and save it as a ppv.

The other champions without a fight who would be physically ready to defend their belts on short notice are Bisping, Aldo and Miocic. I doubt they do Miocic and idk if Bisping will take it, even though he was wanting to defend his belt on here a month ago. And Aldo, I strongly doubt it.

It's either an interim title bout, or they back Might Mouse up a week or they move Cruz/Garbrandt back from 207 to 206....or they cancel the card.

I could see them pulling mouse off tuf finale have them main event it.

With cruz fight i doubt they take the fight on 2 weeks notice just knowing thanksgiving just filled them up yesterday.

More likely fight night.

Pull rumble off it. Reschedule it for 210 vegas likely

Without a title fight, it'll either be canceled altogether or turned into a fight night, no doubt. But they have options, we'll see what they do. I think they get a title (interim or undisputed) on this card somehow and keep it a ppv.

I am all for an interim if it takes more than a year to defend a title. Rumble vs Bader for the interim belt.

Moving mighty mouse to 206 seems like the only thing that makes sense to save that ppv, rumble vs bader for an interim belt makes sense too. those 2 fights should save the ppv.

Bader is a free agent.


He gets what he wants. A big fat check and a title shot if he takes the fight on short notice

Bader or Manuwa would be great fights. Maybe a heavyweight fight? Dang what a bummer

I know this would never happen because hes about to fight for the mw title but imagine Yoel Romero moved up to light heavy and fought Johnson, that fight would be sick with a nasty KO for sure.
