The removal of Alistair Overeem from his title shot vs. Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 on May 26 is now causing a major reshuffling of the deck.

Bigfoot is now slotted to face Velasquez.
Gabriel Gonzaga has been pulled from the Del Rosario match to fight Roy Nelson.
And finally undefeated 11-0 Shane del Rosario faces undefeated 8-0 Stipe Miocic.
Struve vs. Hunt is the sole fight on the main card to remain unchanged

Thus the new main event line up is:
Alistair Overeem vs. Frank Mir
Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva vs. Cain Velasquez
Roy Nelson vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Stefan Struve vs. Mark Hunt
Shane Del Rosario vs. ?

 AWESOME fight! Roy has better boxing but I think Gabe has better kicks. Roy can hang on the ground with Gabe using MMA jits but if it gets there i see Gabe winning by TKO or Sub.
