Although UFC officials previously announced November's UFC 122 event during a recent "Ultimate Insider" episode, today's official press release adds a level of relevance to the night's headliner.

UFC 122, which takes place Nov. 13 at Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany, features a middleweight headliner between Vitor Belfort (19-8 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and Yushin Okami (25-5 MMA, 9-2 UFC).

And following top contender Chael Sonnen's failed UFC 117 drug test, the UFC 122 headliner becomes all the more meaningful now that the winner has been promised a middleweight title shot.

This was probably inevitable. I'm not upset by it. I don't think either man beats Silva, though.
