UFC postpones March 3 Fight Pass event

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently scrapped plans to stage a March 3 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on its Fight Pass digital network, which was expected to be UFC Fight Night 106 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

SHOCKING.

No bouts were attached to the Friday night fight card and that will probably afford matchmakers additional talent for the UFC 209 pay-per-view (PPV) event, headlined by Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson, on Sat., March 4, 2017.

More on that fight here.

Cancellations, or “postponements” are nothing new for 2017. The world’s preeminent combat sports promotion also put the kibosh on its previously-scheduled Anaheim show to focus efforts on Brooklyn.

Those details here.

No reason was given for the changes; however, UFC routinely goes through a roster purge (like this one) and is currently in the midst of a corporate restructuring after last summer’s sale.

Times, they are a-changin’.
