    Matt Hamill vs. Thiago Silva Expected to Square Off at UFC Fight Night 29 in Brazil



    Matt Hamill and Thiago Silva will square off in a light heavyweight bout on Oct. 9 in Brazil.

    Official content partner Knockout Radio broke the news on Wednesday’s show on MMAWeekly.com.

    The event is expected to be dubbed UFC Fight Night 29 and air on the new Fox Sports 1 network.

    Hamill (10-4), a contestant on the third season of The Ultimate Fighter, had called it quits in late 2011 after losing back-to-back bouts to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Alexander Gustafsson.

    Silva (15-3, 2 NC) has travelled a rocky road during his UFC tenure, twice having victories turned to no contest results due to drug testing entanglements.

    He had a victory over Brandon Vera overturned when he provide a fake urine sample, and then had a Submission of the Night win against Stanislav Nedkov changed to a no contest after he tested positive for marijuana metabolites.

    Silva was suspended for six months following the Nedkov bout, but has since returned and scored a first-round knockout over Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante at UFC on Fuel TV 10 in June.

    UFC Fight Night 29 is also rumored to host a welterweight fight between Erick Silva and Dong Hyun Kim.

    Flatfooted wrestler versus flatfooted striker.

    I have to watch Hammill's return fight again as I don't remember it. But I was never high on him and generally don't think guys coming back from retirement excel. I see Silva taking this one.

    I always liked Hamill but I'm kind of worried about this fight for him.

    Not a good fight for Hamill. Unless he does something suprising, I see him dropping this one.

    Taking Hamill decision.. Silva is too flat footed and will get taken down and controlled. He doesn't catch Hamill here..No way.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.
