- Cris Cyborg vastly expressed her desire to face the inaugural UFC Women's featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie at this event. However, de Randamie indicated that she would not face Cyborg due to her repeated transgressions with PEDs (despite Cyborg only failing a test in 2011). The UFC decided to strip her of the title on June 19 due to her refusal to defend it and then booked Cyborg against promotional newcomer and current Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson for the vacant title. In turn, Anderson pulled out on June 27 due to personal reasons and was replaced by current Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger on June 27.
- A featherweight bout between former UFC Featherweight Championship challengers Ricardo Lamas and Chan Sung Jung was originally in the works for UFC on Fox: Weidman vs. Gastelum. However on May 12, the bout was confirmed for this event. The pairing was originally slated to take place in July 2013 at UFC 162, but Jung was pulled from the bout in favor of a title fight against then-champion Jose Aldo at UFC 163. Subsequently, Jung pulled out of the fight in early June due to a severe knee injury. He was replaced by Jason Knight on June 6.
- Doo Ho Choi was expected to face Andre Fili at the event, but pulled out on June 14 due to injury. Artem Lobov revealed that he was offered the fight, but declined in order to help Conor McGregor prepare for his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on June 16.
- A welterweight bout between former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler and former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger Donald Cerrone was originally booked for UFC 205. However, Lawler pulled out to take a little more time after recovering from his previous fight at UFC 201. The fight was then rescheduled to take place on July 8, 2017 at UFC 213. Reports began to circulate on June 28 that Cerrone had sustained a minor injury and that the pairing would be left intact, but shifted to this event. UFC President Dana White confirmed later that Cerrone in fact had a staph infection and a pulled groin, and while the plan was to keep the bout, it wouldn't happen at this event. In the end, the bout was confirmed on July 2 for UFC 214.
- On June 28, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) denied former UFC Bantamweight Champion Renan Barao a bout at that weight class against Aljamain Sterling, due to his previous weight issues at UFC 177, in Sacramento, California. The bout will still happen, but at a catchweight of 140 pounds. CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster said that if Barao makes weight with no issues, the CSAC will revisit the possibility of allowing him at 135 lbs in the future.
- Claudio Puelles was expected to face Sage Northcutt, but pulled out on June 19 due to a knee injury. He was replaced by John Makdessi. In turn, the fight was canceled on July 14 due to both fighters being injured.

For a fighting sport, Jones seems to be painted in a way where he's like this monster lol
I think half of NFL and NBA players does what he does every week?

Manuwa is only in the card in case something happens again I guess, good to see they have at least some back up.

Lawler beat Condit and Rory... if Lawler beats Cerrone he will become the biggest anti-hero for me.
Cormier v Jones will be interesting. Cormier is such a nightmare wet blanket ... Jones needs to land a good crack

I wonder who will get injured this time Jones or Cormier

Excluding the hit and run, which was extremely disgusting, Jones has not done anything "spectacular" in terms of "badness". Cormier kind of sounds pathetic trying to catch whatever straw is thrown to him. And he will lose as he did the last time, to go back to the place where he deserves as the gatekeeper of the division. Honestly, the guy has been saying shit about all of his opponents as they are some sort of a fact - even Rumble, who was the nicest person on the UFC. He seems like a bad version of Plato.

This card is sick though, too bad the UFC are cunts for striping down the women featherweight champ of her title, considering there are serious concerns when it comes to Cyborg. Couldn't she just ask for a 100% full test on her during the whole period in order to fight her?

Germaine de Randamie is a pussy, which is why they stripped her.

GDR knew that if she won the title, she would 100% have to defend it against Cyborg at a later date. What's more, there were only 3 people in the division: GDR, Holm, and Cyborg. Holm recently moved back down to 135 and won her fight.

Regarding testing: The UFC made the fight with GDR and Cyborg, but GDR refused due to Cyborg's one failed test in 2011 (6 years ago). Cyborg has been tested by USADA (currently the best drug testing organization) for multiple years, and she has passed all of those tests, and still gets tested by USADA because USADA tests year-round, even if you aren't preparing for a fight.

Not to mention, GDR fouled Holly Holm twice in their title fight and was never deducted a point for doing the same thing (hitting after the round ended), and she almost knocked Holm out the second time she did it. Right after the fight was over, GDR said she was willing to give Holm an immediate rematch, but Holm said no and moved back down to 135 pounds. Then, when the Cyborg fight was brought up, GDR claimed she was injured and would need time to recover, which led to several months of her going inactive from the MMA world, only to return months later and give an excuse as to why she doesn't want to fight Cyborg.

Essentially, GDR knew what she was getting into when she fought Holm for the belt, then she didn't want to fight the #1 ranked female in her division when she was expected to and came up with an excuse. GDR is also a part-time fighter and has a full-time job as a police officer in her country, which makes it easy for her to only fight 1 time per year (at most).

Yeah GDR was terrified of Cyborg, what a lame excuse she gave, that she was a cheater years ago bla bla. Nice card btw, two boring cards before this so we have to wait = (

With UFC 214 just two weeks away, neither Sage Northcutt nor John Makdessi will compete on the card. The UFC confirmed on Friday that both men suffered undisclosed injuries, so the bout was been canceled.

I think Woodley will win but i'm really rooting for Maia =(

james9994: make note dont play against floofy, ;(

Rooting for Maia for sure. I could see this being one of the most boring fight ever from Woodley, which is quite something.

i got maia and DC.

northsails   Bulgaria. Jul 26 2017 20:31. Posts 410

Value on DC, imo.

1 fight in 2 years in a half, where Jones looked less than stellar. DC should win some rounds, also new rules about eye pokes, might leave Jones -1 point down. Should be close,imo.

Biggest value on the card I think is Renan Barao. He is just the worst match up possible for already overrated Sterling. Can't believe that he is a dog in this fight.
