The grudge match between Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva and Chael "The American Gangster" Sonnen has been moved to Brazil, the UFC announced Thursday.

"The highly-anticipated showdown between The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva has a new date and home, as UFC president Dana White announced Thursday that the light heavyweight bout will now headline a show in Brazil on May 31," a post on the organization's website said.

A fight between the light-heavyweight rivals was originally slated as the co-main event at UFC 173 in Las Vegas on May 24 behind the middleweight championship bout between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort.

The UFC says a city and venue will be announced shortly.
