Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira moved to UFC 110 (Updated)

Antonio Rodrigo NogueiraAfter a case of staph infection recently forced Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira out of his anticipated heavyweight showdown with Cain Velasquez, it now appears the two championship contenders will lock horns at UFC 110.

The news of the recent shifting of the bout comes courtesy of a recent report from

UFC 110 is expected for February and will mark the first time the promotion ventures to Australia.

The two had previously been scheduled to face off during the main event of UFC 108 slated for January 2, but luckily Nogueira must feel optimistic enough to compete just one month later.

Velasquez will be looking to build upon his undefeated record and his most recent victories over respected heavyweights in Ben Rothwell and Cheick Kongo, while Nogueira is coming off of his electrifying war waged with Randy Couture in which he was awarded with the decision, following the disappointing TKO defeat at the hands of Frank Mir.
