Sonnen vs. Silva Will Now Headline UFC 175

The fight between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva is now set to be the co-main event of UFC 175 on July 5 in Las Vegas and the upcoming fight between Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic is now the main event of UFC Fight Night Brazil on May 31, the UFC announced Monday night.

Dos Santos-Miocic was originally the co-main event of UFC 173 on May 24. A bout between Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger will move up into that slot. But White told Yahoo!, “I’m not done working on that card,” referring to the Memorial Day Weekend show. The main event, though, will remain a bantamweight title fight between champion Renan Barao and T.J. Dillashaw.
