In an interview with MMA OddsBreaker’s James Lynch, UFC welterweight Bojan Velickovic disclosed that his training partner, former RFA welterweight champion Brandon”Ruckus” Thatch was reserved to carry on Brazil’s Erick Silva. There is no official date and location for the fight booking, along with the bout has not been formally announced, but Velickovic did say that it is in September, so one would suppose that may be September 24th’s UFC Fight Night 95 in Silva’s backyard of Brasilia, Brazil. The two 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 three of themand Silva is coming off a pair of defeats himself, most recently a barbarous knockout in the hands of Nordine Taleb. This is a bit of a surprise match-up, as many figured there was a good possibility both welterweights would be receiving their walking papers from the advertising following their latest outings inside the Octagon. The UFC has decided that one of them must stick around, and in a promotion where some fighters become cut after 1 loss, these welterweights are extremely lucky. The two Thatch and Silva have seemed to be about a decline in recent bouts, therefore it’s going to be intriguing to see how they will appear against each other when 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, even when it would probably serve him better to just hang up the gloves for good. Silva trains from Kings MMA CA under the tutelage of Master Rafael Cordeiro, in Huntington Beach. Thatch and Velickovic struggle out of Evolution Fight Team at Denver, CO..
