    Overeem vs. Frank Mir shifted to UFC 169, Jon Jones vs. Teixeira set as main event

    One card's loss is another card's gain, as a heavyweight collision between Frank Mir and Alistair Overeem, initially scheduled for UFC 167, has been moved to Zuffa's Super Bowl weekend event, UFC 169.

    Additionally, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will attempt to make the seventh consecutive defense of his title when UFC's No. 1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter takes on Glover Teixeira in the night's main event.

    UFC 169 is slated to take place Feb. 1, 2014 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Newsday first reported the bookings, which were then confirmed by UFC officials.

    According to Newsday, Mir and Overeem were removed from the UFC 167 card to allow Mir further time to recover from his August 31 knockout loss to Josh Barnett.

    "While there was no indication whatsoever that Mir wouldn't be fully, medically cleared in time to compete on November 16th, UFC officials and Nevada Commission representatives believed that a short postponement would allow both athletes more time to train for the bout," the UFC said in a statement to Newsday.

    As a result of the switch, UFC President Dana White told MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani that a preliminary bout between Josh Koscheck and Tyron Woodley will replace Mir vs. Overeem on UFC 167's pay-per-view lineup
