Assuming ASCE7 = ASCE7-95 or newer,
110 mph ASCE7 is not the same as 110 mph UBC 97. This is the 3 second gust wind versus the 50 yr wind that has been talked about in previous discussions... Depending on the actual factors involved (ht, exposure, primary framing vs components and cladding, influence area, etc.) the 110 mph UBC 97 wind may be heavier than the 110 mph ASCE7 wind and will be for most of those variations. I don't have either of those codes personally in front of me at this time to verify actual numbers or equations. But would have access at the end of next week if you are still needing assistance.
Hope this helps,
