It looks as if Saturday’s heavyweight battle between former champion Tim Silvia and rising up-and-comer Brandon Vera has taken on new significance in the wake of Randy Couture’s resignation.
With Couture leaving as the heavyweight champion, the now vacated belt is up for grabs; and multiple sources, including Yahoo!Sports.com, have informed us that the fight between Silva and Vera will likely be for a title shot with Antonio Nogueira to take place in early February during Super Bowl weekend.
Please note that nothing has been confirmed as of yet. We’ll keep you posted as this story develops.
