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 reserved to take on Brazil’s Erick Silva. There is no official date and location for the struggle booking, and the bout hasn’t been formally declared, but Velickovic did state that it is in September, so one would guess that may be September 24th’s UFC Fight Night 95 in Silva’s garden of Brasilia, Brazil. Both 170-pounders have their backs against the wall going into this contest, as Thatch is coming off three straight losses, being completed by rear naked choke submission in all three of them, and Silva is coming off a pair of defeats himself, most recently a vicious knockout at the hands of Nordine Taleb. This is a bit of a surprise match-up, as most guessed there was a decent chance both welterweights would be receiving their walking papers from the promotion following their most recent outings inside the Octagon. The UFC has yet decided that one of them must stick about, and in a marketing where some fighters get cut after only 1 loss, these welterweights are fortunate. Both Thatch and Silva have appeared to be about a decline in recent bouts, therefore it will be interesting to see how they will look against each other once they square off this September. 1 fighter’s UFC narrative will continue, while the one who tastes conquer will probably be inching closer to some Bellator contract, as it would probably serve him better to 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 fight from Evolution Fight Team at Denver, CO.. Velickovic faced former American Top Team training partner Michael Graves at the featured bout for the UFC Fight Pass prelims for UFC 201 last evening with his bout causing a vast majority draw.
