The UFC is no longer hosting a pay-per-view event on Aug. 19.

Officials today announced plans for that show have been scrapped. As a result, a Sept. 9 event originally expected to be UFC 216 will now instead be UFC 215.

The show takes place at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main card airs on PPV, and FS1 and UFC Fight Pass are expected to carry the prelims.

It’s the UFC’s first event in Edmonton in company history. It’s also the second in Canada this year; UFC Fight Night 105 took place in Halifax on Feb. 19.

The Aug. 19 event was never formally announced but was expected to take place in Seattle, possibly with flyweight champion and Seattle-area resident Demetrious Johnson, who’s recently butted heads with UFC officials. However, those plans have been nixed, though an exact reason wasn’t given.

A headliner for the new UFC 215 event on Sept. 9 hasn’t been set, though a few other matchups have been revealed in recent weeks.

The latest UFC 215 lineup includes:

  • Henry Cejudo vs. Wilson Reis
  • Rick Glenn vs. Gavin Tucker
  • Ashlee Evans-Smith vs. Sarah Moras
  • Arjan Bhullar vs. Luis Henrique
