UFC 139 Fight Card Shaping Up

via strikeforce.com

The UFC 139 card was expected to feature a UFC heavyweight title matchup between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos, but that bout was moved up a week onto the UFC on Fox card. Instead, the UFC has decided to go with a main event featuring Vitor Belfort and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le. And yes, it has been confirmed that it will be the main event. Le is a local San Jose legend that is a huge draw in the city, but it's still a bit of a head-scratcher to say the least. The co-main will be a de-facto number 1 contender's matchup at bantamweight with Urijah Faber taking on Brian Bowles. In addition to the seven bouts announced so far, it is expected that Jon Fitch will compete on this card as well, though an opponent hasn't been decided as of yet.

Nov 19th, live on pay-per-view from San Jose, CA:

Vitor Belfort (20-9) vs. Cung Le (7-1)

Brian Bowles (10-1) vs. Urijah Faber (25-5)

Martin Kampmann (17-5) vs. Rick Story (13-4)

Ryan Bader (12-2) vs. Jason Brilz (18-4-1)

Stephan Bonnar (13-7) vs. Kyle Kingsbury (11-1, 1 NC)
