MMA News: Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva Not in the Cards

According to a report by MMAjunkie.com, a rumored heavyweight battle between Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva appears to be just that, as a source confirmed to the site that the fight is not happening.

Silva, however, is still likely to make his UFC debut in April from Atlanta, Georgia at UFC 146. An opponent is unknown at this time for the former Strikeforce competitor.

Velasquez has been out of action since dropping the UFC heavyweight title to Junior dos Santos this past November. The loss was the first of his career, as dos Santos finished him early in the first round via knockout.
