By Jonathan Kirschner:

The deck has been shuffled and yet another change has been made to the UFC 146 main card.

After results from Alistair Overeem’s drug test came back with escalated levels of testosterone (14:1), the hype behind UFC 146 was in jeopardy. Dana White announced on Friday night that Frank Mir would be replacing Alistair Overeem in the main-event and would be the new number one contender for the UFC Heavyweight Championship. Cain Velasquez, who was originally scheduled to face Frank Mir, is now going to fight Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in what will be his UFC debut. Originally supposed to fight Antonio Silva, Roy Nelson was left without an opponent until today.

It is now confirmed that Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga will be fighting Roy “Big Country” Nelson on the main-card of UFC 146.
