Travis Browne, Derrick Lewis fight moved from UFC 208 to card one week later

A heavyweight fight between Travis Browne and Derrick Lewis, originally scheduled to take place on Feb. 11, will now headline a UFC Fight Night on Feb. 19.

The fight will take place at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Original plans had the fight taking place at UFC 208 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, but the UFC needed a new main event for its televised card one week later. That card recently lost a heavyweight main event between Junior dos Santos and Stefan Struve to injury.

Browne (18-5-1) is attempting to snap a two-fight skid. He has suffered back-to-back losses to Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum.

Lewis (17-4) is one of the hottest heavyweights on the roster right now, having won his past five. He has four finishes during the winning streak.
