The cancelation of UFC 176 sent shockwaves to all of the other cards taking place over the next couple of months with several shows flourishing in the wake of the pay-per-view’s demise. 

At the top of the list was a new main event being made for the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Connecticut where middleweights Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza and Gegard Mousasi will meet in the new headline bout while injuries also shook up a few fights, most notably the upcoming UFC Fight Night: Lawler vs. Brown card on FOX where Josh Thomson got a new opponent just two weeks out from the scheduled show.

UFC 178 in Las Vegas also got a slew of new bouts added including former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz making his long awaited return as well as top rated women’s contender Cat Zingano scheduling her first fight in over a year.
