The all-heavyweight main card of UFC 146 is complete once again, as Shane Del Rosario and Stipe Miocic have been signed to for a showdown at the event. The two will meet on May 26 in Las Vegas, bringing together two undefeated prospects following a frantic shuffling of fights due to Alistair Overeem‘s removal from a headlining bout against champion Junior dos Santos.
Del Rosario (11-0) will be making his UFC debut on the card after scoring several wins in Strikeforce. His original opponent, Gabriel Gonzaga, was recently moved into a match-up with Roy Nelson on the same card.
By comparison, Miocic (8-0) has won both of his UFC fights, topping Joey Beltran and Phil De Fries.
UFC President Dana White confirmed via Twitter early Tuesday morning while in Brazil for a press conference.
