UFC 186 lost arguably its most interesting fight, but it also gained another title fight.
Demetrious Johnson vs. Kyoji Horiguchi for the UFC flyweight title is the new co-main event, as Rory MacDonald vs. Hector Lombard has been removed from the card, according to the promotion. No reason was given for the MacDonald-Lombard cancellation.
UFC 186, headlined by T.J. Dillashaw vs. Renan Barao 2 for the bantamweight title, is set for April 25 at Montreal’s Bell Centre.
Horiguchi (15-1) has won his last nine fights in a row, including four straight in the UFC. The 24-year-old Japanese fighter, who is a protÃ©gÃ© of KID Yamamoto, most recently defeated Louis Gaudinot at UFC 182 via unanimous decision.
Johnson (21-2-1), the only flyweight champion in UFC history, is unbeaten in his last eight fights, submitting Chris Cariaso in his last bout back in September.
Others notable fights scheduled for UFC 186 include Quinton Jackson vs. Fabio Maldonado, Michael Bisping vs. C.B. Dollaway and Patrick Cote vs. Joe Riggs. No word just yet on what’s next for either MacDonald or Lombard.
Also, according to the UFC, TUF Nations winner Chad Laprise vs. Bryan Barberena has recently been added to the card, as well.

Holy Fucking DOMINATION!!!! I finally got to see the fight last night and HOLY SHIT!!!! From the first punch it was basically over. Dos Anjos pressured him from the get go and Pettis couldn’t get set up. I know Pettis said he couldn’t see out of his right eye, but it doesn’t really matter when your on your back getting pummled.
I hate to say it because Cowboy is one of my all time favorite fighters, but I think Khabib is going to ragdoll Cowboy all over the cage. And then we will see another rape from Khabib on Dos Anjos. That’s just my opinion. As long as Khabib can stay healthy.

Pretty shocked you guys didn’t post up about this fight. Iaquinta was gifted that fight. Anyone with any knowledge of MMA rules knows Masvidal won that fight 29-28. I gave the last round to Iaquinta as a gift. Not sure what the judges were on. Or they just started scoring leg kicks that night.
Masvidal needs to stop coasting at the end of fights. Put that fucking game controller down, stop eating McDonalds and go fucking train harder lazy bitch. Dude’s hands are crazy good but his work ethic is awful.
And the Timothy Johnson vs Shamil Abdurahimov was a super early stoppage. Fucking newb ref.
Rest of the card was decent. Chad Mendes is a fucking stud. He would blow right through Connor. Let’s hope we get to see them match up in the future.
