UFC 148 Addition: Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva II off UFC 147 in Brazil

At the UFC 147 press conference earlier this morning Dana White, Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva announced in Brazil that the main event for that card is being pushed off a couple weeks. Unable to secure a stadium show for one of the biggest rematches in recent memory, the middleweight championship rematch is being moved to the main event of UFC 148 in Las Vegas, NV.

That card is looking remarkably stacked right now:

Middleweight Championship bout: (c) Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen
Bantamweight Championship bout: (c) Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber
Light Heavyweight bout: Tito Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin
Middleweight bout: Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le
Middleweight bout: Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch
Welterweight bout: Demian Maia vs. Dong Hyun Kim
Bantamweight bout: Renan Barão vs. Ivan Menjivar
Lightweight bout: Melvin Guillard vs. Fabrício Camões
Middleweight bout: Constantinos Philippou vs. Riki Fukuda
Lightweight bout: Gleison Tibau vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
