The main event for UFC 206 took a turn when it was revealed that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier would not compete on the card due to suffering an injury. Cormier was set to rematch Anthony “Rumble” Johnson in a five-round championship fight.

With the light-heavyweight title fight no longer on the card, the UFC promoted Max Holloway vs. Anthony Pettis to the main event as a five-round interim featherweight title fight.

The featherweight division was shooken up with the UFC’s decision to turn Holloway vs. Pettis into an interim title fight as they announced that Conor McGregor “relinquished” the featherweight title, putting then-interim featherweight champion Jose Aldo into the position of the undisputed champion.
