UFC 216 Card: Heavyweight Bout Moved to UFC Fight Pass Prelims


Mark Godbeer and Walt Harris have been removed from the UFC 216 pay-per-view main card and slotted in the main event of UFC Fight Pass that night.

With the addition of a second title bout, officials decided they had enough action on the PPV telecast.

UFC 216 takes place October 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
