UFC 147 Finally Receives Official Status; Will Be Held In Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil

No Anderson Silva. No Chael Sonnen. No problem, as far as the UFC is concerned.

UFC 147 will still take place in Brazil, as the card was given an official date on Friday. The event will be held in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, at the Mineirinho arena on June 23.

In the main event, Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort will meet for the second time. Belfort earned a first round knockout victory over Silva several years ago, while the two are currently finishing up their duties as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.

TUF: Brazil will also be featured on the card, as the finals of the featherweight and middleweight tournaments will take place.

Mike Russow vs. Fabricio Werdum is also set for the pay-per-view, which will receive the usual FX and Facebook coverage for the prelims.
