brandon vera tim sylvia

"The winner of the Brandon Vera-Tim Sylvia fight on Saturday at UFC 77 in Cincinnati will meet Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the vacant heavyweight title sometime early next year."

-- Yahoo!Sports.com reports that the winner of the fight between Brandon Vera and Tim Sylvia this weekend will challenge Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the vacant heavyweight title. "Big Nog" was penciled in to clash with Cheick Kongo; however, the status of that showdown could have changed with the recent resignation of reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion, Randy Couture. SuperBowl weekend on February 2, 2008, would appear to be the likely slot for this title fight to happen (that's speculation.)
