MMAjunkie.com reported details on the two events earlier today, including the likely venues and dates.
UFC 130, which will reportedly feature a light heavyweight showdown between Quinton Jackson and Thiago Silva, will take place on May 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. A heavyweight contest between Roy Nelson and former champion Frank Mir, meanwhile, has been rumored as the co-main event of the evening.
Less than one month later, UFC 131 will happen on June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, though no main event has been slotted for the card. However, MMAjunkie.com has learned that former heavyweight top contender Shane Carwin could be featured on the card, but no opponent has been announced.
The pair of events are likely to be broadcast live on pay-per-view.
