According to a new report from Tatame, Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen will most likely be happening in Las Vegas and not Brazil this summer.

The middleweight title rematch is still scheduled for June 21st in Rio but the two main event fighters along with UFC President Dana White are expected to announce the change this Tuesday at a press conference to be held in Brazil.

The June 21st event coincides with a United Nations event that will cause lodging issues in the city.

The plan is to move the title fight to the July 7th card in Las Vegas. More news about the fight is expected early next week.
