Back in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, after fighting for other organizations during 2008 and 2009, Tim Boetsch will have his work cut out for him when he faces Thiago Silva, who is coming off a loss to former champion Rashad Evans. The fight is tipped for UFC 117 this August, in California.
Italy’s Alessio Sakara is out of July’s UFC 116, where he was supposed to face Nate Marquardt. According to the fighter’s manager, the cancellation was due to the death of Sakara’s father. His return to the octagon could come in August.
It hasn’t yet been confirmed, but Gleison Tibau has a likely next opponent after his win against Caol Uno at UFN 21. The new test for the American Top Team fighter should be Jim Miller, who is on a four-fight win streak. The matchup is expected for September.
