In an interview with MMA OddsBreaker’s James Lynch, UFC welterweight Bojan Velickovic revealed his coaching partner, former RFA welterweight champion Brandon”Ruckus” Thatch has been reserved to carry on Brazil’s Erick Silva. There’s no official date and place for its fight booking, and the bout hasn’t been formally announced, however, Velickovic did state that it is in September, so one would suppose that may be September 24th’s UFC Fight Night 95 at Silva’s garden of Brasilia, Brazil. The two 170-pounders have their backs against the wall heading into this contest, as Thatch is coming off three consecutive losses, being finished by rear naked choke entry in three of them, and Silva is coming off a pair of defeats himself, most recently a vicious knockout in the hands of Nordine Taleb. This is a bit of a surprise match-up, as most guessed there was a decent chance both welterweights are receiving their walking papers from the promotion following their most recent excursions inside the Octagon. The UFC has however decided that one of them must stick around, and at a marketing where some fighters get cut after only one reduction, these welterweights are lucky. Both Thatch and Silva have appeared to be on a decrease in recent bouts, so it will be intriguing to see how they will look against each other once they square off this September. One fighter’s UFC story will continue, while the person who tastes conquer will likely be inching closer to a Bellator contract, even as it would likely serve him better to just hang up the gloves for good. Silva stands out of 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 resulting in a majority draw.
