UFC 230. Poirier vs Diaz, out. DC vs Lewis, in. Eubanks vs Valentina, gone

UFC 230 is just a month away and has had more changes made to it than a soccer mom has had facelifts. Initially, the co-main event was going to be Nate Diaz vs Dustin Poirier. The UFC tried to find a title fight main event to headline the card and landed on Valentina Shevchenko vs Sijara Eubanks. Both are gone from the card and the UFC has made Derrick Lewis vs Daniel Cormier as the main event.

Dustin Poirier got injured and instead of finding a replacement for Nate Diaz, the UFC just scrapped the fight altogether. Last week, the UFC announced that Sijara Eubanks would fight Valentina Shevchenko for the women’s flyweight title. That fight was canceled and Valentina is moved back to UFC 231 to take on Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Seemingly out of the blue, Derrick Lewis will take on Daniel Cormier for the UFC heavyweight title.

UFC 230 went from miserable to stacked in just a matter of days. There’s never a dull moment in MMA.
