The wave of drama caused by Fabricio Werdum and Cain Velasquez pulling out of UFC 196 is far from over, check out how it’s impacted the entire MMA schedule this year…

OK, so UFC 196 was never the blockbuster PPV (pay-per-view) card that we all were highly anticipating, but it was a half devent event. It easily could’ve delivered some great fights, until it started unravelling at the edges, and taking the rest of the year with it.

First off we heard that former champion Cain Velasquez was once again injured, and could no longer fight in the main event rematch with the champ Fabricio Werdum. It sucked, but the replacement of Stipe Miocic was satisfactory at least.


Then it was Werdum’s turn to drop from the running. ‘Vai Cavalo’ revealed he wasn’t 100 percent, and would’ve fought Cain, but not Miocic with his current injuries. All of a sudden, the event was in big trouble.

Now we had Miocic lined up for the main event with no opponent, and both the former and current heavyweight champion on ice due to injuries. Almost like a headless chicken, UFC 196 began to wonder aimlessly in circles.


So where do Conor McGregor and Rafael dos Anjos come in to this messy situation? Well they were orginally slated to face off at UFC 197 on March 5, 2016, but that’s no longer the case.

With the ripple effect from UFC 196, which was set for February 6, the biggest fight of the year so far has been well and truly uprooted.
