Nogueira vs. Velasquez Moved to UFC 109

A heavyweight bout between top contenders Cain Velasquez and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has been moved to UFC 109 in February. The bout, originally scheduled for UFC 108 on Jan. 2, was re-scheduled when Nogueira was forced to pull out due to a severe staph infection.

The match will serve as a number-one contender bout, with the winner likely to face the victor of the eventual Shane Carwin/Brock Lesnar bout.
