Joe Lauzon-Jim Miller Moved To UFC 155 Co-Main Event; Chris Leben-Karlos Vemola Promoted

Lightweights Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller have been pushed into the co-main event for UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II. The card takes place December 29 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Also, due to the withdraw of Forrest Griffin-Phil Davis, Chris Leben and Karlos Vemola will now kick-start the pay-per-view portion of the show. They had been set to be the main event for the prelims.

The card, which features a main event between UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, has lost three fights to injury, including Griffin, Gray Maynard and Chris Weidman.
