The Las Vegas-based promotion announced Thursday that its pay-per-view event scheduled for the Honda Center in Anaheim, originally entitled UFC 208, has been moved to Aug. 5. As a result, the card UFC 209 card set for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Feb. 11 will now become UFC 208 (online betting).

No reason was given for the change. As it stands now, there are two events scheduled for January: UFC Fight Night 103 “Rodriguez vs. Penn” in Phoenix on Jan. 15 and UFC on Fox 23 at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Jan. 28.
