Sonnen vs. Silva Moved From Brazil To Vegas

April 8, 2014 3:13 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Good news for Mark Munoz and Gegard Mousasi.

Chael Sonnen will no longer be headlining an event on the same day they are. Instead, Sonnen vs. Silva, the ‘TUF Brazil 3’ coaching rivals, have been moved and will now fight on July 5th at UFC 175.

In the coaching duo’s place comes an equally intriguing ‘TUF Brazil 3’ headliner in the form of Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic.

Those two get the boot from UFC 173, which they were originally scheduled to co-headline.

No other shifts from major events are expected at this time. All the reshuffling is due to Weidman’s UFC 173 withdrawal.
