UFC officials announced the first bout for UFC on FX 3, as Brandon Vera and Thiago Silva will face off in a rematch. UFC on FX 3 takes place May 15 from Fairfax, Virginia.
Silva (15-2) was recently cleared to return to action after a suspension for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs after defeating Vera at UFC 125. The bout was eventually ruled a no-contest, and Vera, who had been released, was given another chance in the UFC.
Vera (12-5) scored a victory over Eliot Marshall back in October, and called out Silva for a return bout as soon as Silva was allowed to return.
