Two former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) combatants will face off once again in a rematch 10 years in the making as ex-middleweight champions Murilo Bustamante (14-8-1) and Dave Menne (45-16-2) collide after first going to war way back at UFC 35: "Throwdown" in January of 2002.
Bustamante stopped Menne by way of technical knockout in their first encounter.
The rematch is set for Amazon Forest Combat (AFC) 2, which goes down on March 31, 2012, LIVE from the Amadeu Teixeira Gymnasium in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil.
Bustamante has fought twice since 2007 and both fights were losing efforts, but holds notable career wins over Menne, Matt Lindland and Ikuhisa Minowa. Menne has stayed more active as he is 4-1 in his past five fights which include two stints under the Bellator Fighting Championships (BFC) banner.
The card is rounded out with former UFC number one contenders and mixed martial arts (MMA) veterans Thales Leites vs. Matt Horwich, Gustavo Machado vs. Patrick Cote, Daniel Acacio vs. Josh Burkman and Satoshi Ishii vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.
