UFC 131 Fight Card: News, Odds, Previews, Predictions, Analysis and More

UFC 131 is set to take place on June 11 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The main event on the card will see two highly ranked heavyweight fighters face each other in the octagon, as Junior dos Santos meets Shane Carwin.

The card was originally scheduled to feature a heavyweight title elimination bout between Dos Santos and his fellow coach on Season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter, Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar recently announced that he is suffering from diverticulitis and would be unable to remain on the card.

Carwin, who was scheduled to meet Jon Olav Einemo at UFC 131, was moved into Lesnar's spot. 

It is believed that the winner of the Dos Santos versus Carwin fight will be next in line to face UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez, who is currently rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

Currently, four other bouts will round out the fight card:

Kenny Florian vs. Diego Nunes

Jon Olav Einemo vs. Dave Herman

Demian Maia vs. Mark Muñoz

Donald Cerrone vs. Vagner Rocha
