UFC 148 has been in constant upheaval since it was announced, and the last couple of weeks have been no different. With Dominick Cruz forced out with an ACL injury, Urijah Faber will now face Renan Barao for the UFC interim bantamweight title, while Barao's original opponent Ivan Menjivar will face Mike Easton. The July 7th card also saw Demian Maia vs. Dong Hyun Kim move up to the main card when the bout between Michael Bisping and Tim Boetsch was moved to UFC 149.

Of course, the main event is still the long-awaited rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen for the UFC middleweight title. There will also be a fan expo, and tickets are already on sale for that. Here's how the card looks right now:
