In an interview with MMA OddsBreaker’s James Lynch, UFC welterweight Bojan Velickovic disclosed that his coaching 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 the fight booking, along with the bout hasn’t been officially announced, but Velickovic did state that it is in September, so one might suppose that could be September 24th’s UFC Fight Night 95 in Silva’s garden 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 submission in three of these and Silva is coming off a pair of defeats himself, most recently a barbarous knockout in the hands of Nordine Taleb. This is a small surprise match-up, as many guessed there was a decent possibility both welterweights are getting their walking papers from the promotion following their latest excursions inside the Octagon. The UFC has decided that one of these must stick about, and in a marketing where some fighters get cut these welterweights are extremely fortunate. Both Thatch and Silva have appeared to be on a decline in recent bouts, therefore it will be intriguing to see how they will look against each other when they square off this September. 1 fighter’s UFC story will last, while the person who tastes defeat will likely be inching closer to some Bellator contract, even as it would likely 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 from Evolution Fight Team at Denver, CO..
