Former 205 pound champion, Vitor Belfort and Japanese superstar, Yushin Okami is set to main event UFC 122 in Oberhausen, Germany, on November 13th, despite the Brazilian’s desire not to be a part of the card.

According to a report by F4Wonline.com, the two men will be the main event, with the winner squaring off with the winner of the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen rematch set for the turn of the year. UFC 122 is expected to air for free in the U.S. on SPIKE TV via tape delay on November 13th.

Belfort was last seen defeating former middleweight champion, Rich Franklin last September at UFC 103. After the fight the Brazilian decided to have surgery on his shoulder, forgoing a shot at the title.

Okami is on a two fight winning streak since losing to Chael Sonnen via decision, looking better than ever with wins over Lucio Linhares and Mark Munoz.
