UFC 108 Fight Card: Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva

Light heavyweights Rashad Evans (18-1-1) and Thiago Silva (14-1) have been upgraded to headline UFC 108 on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas following Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's withdrawal against Cain Velasquez due to a serious staph infection.

"At the same time, we wish Antonio Nogueira a speedy recovery and can't wait for his return."
