On Saturday night the UFC returns to pay-per-view at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada for UFC 206. The event is their 12th pay-per-view offering of 2016 and their third Canadian event this year.
The main event sees top featherweights Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis meet for the division’s interim title. A reshuffle at the top of the card following an injury to Daniel Cormier, prompted the UFC to strip Conor McGregor of his featherweight title. That move saw Jose Aldo promoted from interim to undisputed champion, and an interim title added to this bout.
Holloway is riding an incredible nine-fight UFC win streak. His last defeat came back in August 2013 when he lost by decision to Conor McGregor. Pettis snapped a three fight losing streak at lightweight, by dropping to 145 pounds and beating Charles Oliveira back in August.
In the co-main event exciting welterweights Donald Cerrone and Matt Brown meet in a potential barnburner. Cerrone has impressed since moving up to welterweight earlier this year, winning three straight at 170 pounds. Brown has struggled since working his way into a title eliminator in 2014. The fighter has now lost four of his past five, with his only win during that time coming against Tim Means at UFC 189.

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card
Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.
Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.
This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
