The UFC held a press conference today in Brazil to announce that the main event of UFC 147 has been switched from Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen 2 to Wanderlei Silva vs. Vitor Belfort.

Silva vs. Sonnen has been moved to UFC 148 on July 7th in Las Vegas.

Silva vs. Belfort, who are also the coaches on TUF: Brazil, will now headline the card that will feature the finals of the season and possibly a Jose Also Featherweight title defense though that is just a rumor at this point.

It was also announced during the presser that UFC 147 doesn't actually have a venue and Dana White stated that everything that could go wrong with the card, has.

More info as it becomes available. Stay tuned.
