erick-silva-5.jpgWelterweights Erick Silva (14-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and John Hathaway (17-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) will collide at UFC on FUEL TV 10, which also serves as the finale for the second season of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.”

The recently announced event is expected to take place June 8 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. The event’s main card airs on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook.

UFC officials announced the bout following an initial report from Brazilian website Globo.

“TUF: Brazil 2? features coaches Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum, who lead opposing squads in the series, which is expected to debut March 17 on Globo.

Silva, who recently was forced to pull out of a UFC 156 bout with Jay Hieron due to an injury, returns to the cage following a loss to Jon Fitch that most observers consider his first true defeat inside the octagon. Fitch outpointed the Brazilian at UFC 153 this past October, which slowed the hype Silva had built with a first-round TKO win over Charlie Brenneman four months earlier.

Following a UFC-debut win over Luis Ramos, Silva was disqualified for illegal punches in a bout against Carlo Prater at UFC 142. However, referee Mario Yamasaki later admitted to erring in his stoppage.

Hathaway, meanwhile, is on the upswing with three straight wins. At UFC Fight Night 24, he outpointed Kris McCray and followed it up with decision wins over Pascal Krauss and John Maguire at UFC on FOX 3 and UFC on FUEL TV 5, respectively.

The 25-year-old Hathaway was widely thought to be one of the welterweight division’s best up-and-comers before a decision loss to Mike Pyle at UFC 120 halted his momentum.
