The MMA card scheduled for August 19 in Seattle has been canceled. While it was never formally announced as UFC 215, the September event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on September 9 has been renamed from UFC 216 to UFC 215. 

It was anticipated that the targeted main event would include TJ Dillashaw, but champion Cody Garbrandt was unavailable. Rumors swirled that Dillashaw could drop to Flyweight to face champion Demetrius Johnson, but Mighty Mouse reportedly turned down the fight multiple times. 

It is worth nothing that the event was scheduled one week prior to the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather superfight, although it is unknown if the news is related. 

Henry Cejudo vs Wilson Reis is confirmed for the event in Edmonton.
