UFC 146's revolving door still heavy
Here's a look at what this Saturday's UFC 146 main card was originally constructed as back in March:
|Junior Dos Santos||vs.||Alistair Overem|
|Cain Velasquez||vs.||Frank Mir|
|Roy Nelson||vs.||Antonio Silva|
|Gabriel Gonzaga||vs.||Shane Del Rosario|
|Stefan Struve||vs.||Mark Hunt|
Now, three days shy of fight night, we've got a slightly different lineup. And by slightly different, we mean quite radically different. Overeem's drug-related suspension caused a switch to the main event, which trickled down a level or two. Injuries did their part, as well.
The new matchups are in bold, and the entirely new fighters are in bold italics.
|Junior Dos Santos||vs.||Frank Mir|
|Cain Velasquez||vs.||Antonio Silva|
|Roy Nelson||vs.||Dave Herman|
|Stipe Miocic||vs.||Shane Del Rosario|
|Stefan Struve||vs.||Lavar Johnson|
