Even though UFC President Dana White is en route to Rio De Janeiro for a special press conference, he still had time to tweet a confirmation for the UFC 146 co-main event.

Don’t believe any of the BS you read on the internet. Cain is fighting Bigfoot Silva May 26th in Vegas

Former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez was left without an opponent when Frank Mir was called in to replace Alistair Overeem, who was due to have his own battle with the Nevada State Athletic Commission this Tuesday. Many expected Werdum to be the late replacement, but according to this latest tweet from Dana White, this will not be the case.

“Bigfoot” Silva is coming off a 1st round TKO loss to Strikeforce Grand Prix finalist Daniel Cormier and will be looking for a quick turnaround with a victory over the former champ.

UFC 146 is expected to take place on May 26, 2012 at the MGM Grand Garden.
