UFC 218 has lost one of its best fights.

The Paul Felder vs. Al Iaquinta lightweight fight has been canceled due to a recent Iaquinta injury, MMA Fighting has learned. Charles Oliveira is currently the front-runner to replace Iaquinta, though that fight isn’t finalized just yet.

UFC 218, headlined by Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar for the featherweight title, takes place Dec. 2 from the new Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

The card also features Alistair Overeem vs. Francis Ngannou, Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje, Henry Cejudo vs. Sergio Pettis and Tecia Torres vs. Michelle Waterson.
