An intriguing lightweight contest between high-energy fighters Donald Cerrone (15-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Charles Oliveira (14-1 UFC, 2-1 UFC) has been promoted to the Versus-televised main card of UFC on Versus 5.

UFC officials announced the change late Monday night.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed with sources close to the event that a middleweight contest between C.B. Dollaway and Jared Hamman is likely to be relegated to the preliminary card in favor of the new fight.

This is a no brainer.

Do you want actual fireworks or just sparklers?

This will be a sweet fight. I think Oliveria brings it and puts on a show.
Not a big fan of Cerrone, so I wouldn't mind seeing Oliveria score a high light knock out or a sweet sub.

I can't imagine any scenario where either of these fighters should be on an undercard.

If the ufc hadn't moved this to the main card, they would have heard about it. Good choice. I hate c.b. anyway, especially that Damn upper lip

I actually don't thing so. With pretty much every fight being aired as of late, I'm sure we'd still see it regardless of where it was placed. It makes more business sense to put it on the main card though.
