The ordering process for Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-views has changed: UFC 246 is only available on ESPN+ in the U.S.

A proposed featherweight clash at UFC 246 between Grant Dawson and Chas Skelly has been canceled.

Dawson announced his withdrawal from Saturday’s card in a post on Instagram. As it stands, UFC 246 will move forward with 12 bouts. The card takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and is headlined by a welterweight clash between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone. UFC 246 will air on pay-per-view via ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

“I'm heartbroken to report I won't be fighting this weekend at UFC 246 due to circumstances out of my control,” Dawson wrote. “I'd like to apologize to everyone who was looking forward to this fight. We are working with the UFC to get my bout rescheduled as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience during this time, and I hope to have fight news very soon.”

Dawson earned a UFC deal with a victory over Adrian Diaz on Season 1 of Dana White’s Contender Series. Since then, “KGD” has posted triumphs over Julian Erosa and Michael Trizano in the Las Vegas-based organization.

Skelly, meanwhile, snapped a two-bout skid with a decision win over Jordan Griffin in his last outing at UFC Fight Night 158 on Sept. 14.
