The UFC is putting together one heck of a heavyweight fight between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (32-5-1) and undefeated Cain Velasquez (7-0-0) for UFC 108. The fight increases the quality of the already impressive card which is headlined by a UFC Heavyweight Championship fight between UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and top contender Shane Carwin. It is very likely that the fight between Nogueira and Velasquez could create a new number one contender for the UFC Heavyweight title.

UFC 106 took a big hit a few week backs when it was announced that the fight between UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and top contender Shane Carwin was removed from the card. The card for UFC 106 has officially been announced and the card is somewhat solid despite the card lacking a title fight. The card is headlined by a rematch between former UFC Light Heavyweight Champions, Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz. The co-main event was recently announced which pits UFC 104 winner Anthony Johnson against TUF Season 1 contestant Josh Koscheck. This is a very interesting match up.
Although UFC 105 is receiving very little commercial time, the event and the fights taking place on November 14 could ultimately shape the UFC especially the light heavyweight division and the welterweight devision. In the co-main event, a scrap between Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy (22-6-0) and Mike "Quick" Swick (14-2-0) could potentially create a new number one contender for the UFC Welterweight title currently held by Georges-St Pierre.
