Thiago Silva is expected to return to action this fall against Stanislav Nedkov. The bout is rumored for UFC 153 on October 13 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Silva returned from a suspension earlier this year, falling to Alexander Gustafsson. Since winning his first 13 fights, Silva has gone just 1-2 with one no-contest.
In the same report from Tatame, it appears that Silva has left American Top Team to train with the “Blackzilians” in Florida. He joins the likes of Alistair Overeem and Rashad Evans at the camp.
Nedkov is 12-0 in his MMA career, including a win over Luiz Cane via knockout last year.
