UFC 217: Saturday’s Card Receives Late Change in Lineup

It seemed kind of weird for Ovince Saint Preux and Corey Anderson to be meeting on UFC Fight Pass this Saturday night at UFC 217.

Well, the light heavyweights are no longer on that section of the event, as officials have moved them to the FOX Sports 1 prelims from New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Anderson-OSP take the place of heavyweights Ion Cutelaba and Michal Oleksiejczuk, who have been shifted to the UFC Fight Pass prelims. Anderson was scheduled to face Patrick Cummins originally.

Anderson (9-2) is 6-2 inside the Octagon and Saint Preux (21-10) sports a 9-5 mark. Cutelaba (13-3) and Oleksiejczuk (12-2) will be the featured attraction for the digital service.

Here’s the latest card:
