Following the cancellation of UFC 151 and some subsequent card-shuffling, the lineup for next month's UFC 152 event is again finalized.

The event, of course, now features a headliner between light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones (16-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) and Vitor Belfort (21-9 MMA, 10-5 UFC).

To make room for the title fight – one of two on the card – a lightweight bout of Evan Dunham (13-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) vs. T.J. Grant (18-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) has been demoted to the event's preliminary card.

UFC 152 takes place Sept. 22 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre, and five fights are part of the PPV lineup. FX and Facebook carry the prelims.

That's going to be one hell of a show

The wait really sucks but for this card it just might be worth it.

6 fight main card for 152

I like this switch.
When I first seen this card and this fight wasn't on the main card I was wondering why.
Oliveira vs Swanson should be more entertaining IMO. One of the tougher fights on the card to predict. I don't see this fight going to decision either. Oliveira by sub or Swanson by KO is how I see it. Both guys looked pretty sweet in their last scraps.
Oliveira is coming in with back to back submission victories (R2 Sub over Brookins and R1 Sub over Wisely).
Swanon is coming in with back to back TKO/KO victories both in the 2nd round over Ross Pearson and George Roop.
The winner of this fight will probably get a top 10 opponent in their next fight.
