A pair of undefeated heavyweights will square off at UFC 146 in May, as Shane Del Rosario takes on Stipe Miocic. The all-heavyweight main card takes place May 26 from Las Vegas.
After moving fighters around to fill the gap left following the exclusion of Alistair Overeem, UFC president Dana White seems to have things in order. Del Rosario (11-0) lost his original opponent, Gabriel Gonzaga, on Monday. White sent out news of the fight on his Twitter account Tuesday.
Gonzaga will now meet Roy Nelson, while Cain Velasquez takes on Antonio Silva, and UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos tackles Frank Mir. Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt also meet on the main card.
Del Rosario will be making his UFC debut, while Miocic (8-0) has won both of his fights inside the Octagon.
