It appears the middleweight scrap between Michael Bisping and Dan Miller slated for “UFC 114: Jackson vs. Evans” has been promoted to the night’s co-main event after Forrest Griffin was forced off the card due to a shoulder injury.

Griffin was set to face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in a bout that would have had serious light heavyweight title implications, however Jason Brilz will now be stepping in to meet Little Nog so the contest has far less significance for the division.

Both Bisping and Miller are looking to end their respective losing skids, as Bisping has dropped two out of his last three bouts, while Miller has lost two straight.

Wanderlei Silva showed that his new 185-pound frame was a good fit against the Bisping at UFC 110. The Brazilian finally got back on the winning track by taking home a unanimous decision in Australia.

Miller has suffered back-to-back setbacks against middleweight champion Anderson Silva’s upcoming and last opponents in and Chael Sonnen and Demian Maia, respectively.

Here’s how an updated UFC 114 fight card current stacks up:

Preliminary Bouts:

Ryan Jensen and Jesse Forbes
Joe Brammer vs. Aaron Riley
Luiz Cain vs. Cyrille Diabate
