UFC 206 has been dealt another blow, as it’s being reported that Anthony Pettis has missed weight for his interim 145 title fight with Max Holloway.

According to reports, Pettis weighed in at 148 pounds this morning in Toronto, Ontario, while Holloway came in at 145. The UFC hasn’t made any public announcement regarding the development, but MMA Fighting is reporting that Holloway can still secure the interim belt, if he defeats Pettis tomorrow. The latter, however, cannot.

Pettis made his featherweight debut this past August and submitted Charles Oliveira.

UFC 206 was originally scheduled to feature a light-heavyweight bout between Anthony Johnson and champion Daniel Cormier. The latter, however, had to withdraw due to injury.
