You know that upcoming mystery card in Brazil, the one that is supposedly hosting a welterweight rumble between Erick Silva vs. Dong Hyun Kim on FOX Sports 1?
Well, you can throw another log on that fire.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is expected to beef up its October line-up with a light heavyweight contest pitting former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 standout Matt Hamill against resurgent Brazilian slugger Thiago Silva, tentatively scheduled for Oct. 9, 2013.
That's according to "Knockout Radio" (via MMA Weekly).
After hanging up the gloves in late 2011, Hamill (11-4) came out of retirement to grind out a unanimous decision win over Roger Hollett at the UFC 152 pay-per-view (PPV) last year in Toronto. His victory over "The Hulk" snapped a two-fight losing streak and put the 36 year-old wrestler back on track.
For what, remains to be seen.
Silva (15-3) was finally able to get back into the win column without having it overturned for pissing hot. The heavy-handed "Blackzilian" pasted Rafael Cavalcante in their 205-pound affair at UFC on FUEL TV 10 earlier this year in Brazil.
Can he nail "The Hammer?"
Aside from Silva vs. Kim, no other fights have been revealed for the Wednesday night event. As always, keep it locked into MMAmania.com for all the breaking news as it develops.
