The UFC has announced an event scheduled for Sept.9 in Edmonton will now be called UFC 215, and that a planned August PPV, most likely in Seattle, is now canceled. It's the second time this year the UFC has rearranged its pay-per-view schedule. The UFC had wanted to book a flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson and T.J. Dillashaw to the August event, but Johnson has declined the fight, saying he believes the next title shot should go to Ray Borg.

Multiple sources have told me UFC bantamweight T.J. Dillashaw is no longer on a plan that would have him down to 125 pounds by August. Dillashaw had wanted a title fight against flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson, but Johnson declined, saying he had already accepted another fight and didn't feel Dillashaw deserved to jump in line. Sounds like Dillashaw's focus is turning back to a title fight against Cody Garbrandt, who is currently recovering from a back injury.
