In an interview with MMA OddsBreaker’s James Lynch, UFC welterweight Bojan Velickovic disclosed his training partner, former RFA welterweight champion Brandon”Ruckus” Thatch has been booked to take on Brazil’s Erick Silva. There’s no official date and place for its struggle booking, along with the bout hasn’t been formally declared, however, Velickovic did say that it is in September, so one would guess that may be September 24th’s UFC Fight Night 95 at Silva’s backyard of Brasilia, Brazil. Both 170-pounders have their backs against the wall heading into this competition, as Thatch is coming off three straight losses, being completed by rear naked choke entry in all three of these , and Silva is coming off a pair of defeats himself, most recently a vicious knockout in the hands of Nordine Taleb. This is a bit of a surprise match-up, as most figured there was a decent possibility both welterweights are getting their walking papers from the advertising following their latest excursions inside the Octagon. The UFC has yet decided that one of them must stick around, and at a promotion where some fighters get cut after 1 reduction, these welterweights are extremely fortunate. Both Thatch and Silva have appeared to be on a decrease in recent bouts, so it will be intriguing to see how they will look against each other once they square off this September. 1 fighter’s UFC narrative will last, while the person who tastes defeat will probably be inching closer to some Bellator contract, as it would likely serve him better to hang up the gloves for good. Silva stands from Kings MMA CA under the tutelage of Master Rafael Cordeiro, in Huntington Beach. Thatch and Velickovic fight out of Evolution Fight Team in Denver, CO.. Velickovic faced former American Top Team training partner Michael Graves in the featured bout for the UFC Fight Pass prelims for UFC 201 last evening with his departure resulting in a vast majority draw.
