Intheguard.tv has the scoop on the return off Anderson Silva to the Octagaon after nearly two months of speculation on when he would be back in action:
There is no longer a place for rumors involving the likely match between the kingpin of middleweight division, Anderson Silva, and top ranked Thales Leites of Nova Uniao. Signed early this week, this fight will be the main event of UFC 97, confirmed for April 18 in Canada. In a call to the Brazilian Leites, he told us that he will be challenging the champion.
This is a classic Muay Thai against Brazilian Jiu-jitsu match and the first time ever two Brazilians will dispute a belt in UFC history. More updates over this bout will be posted in the following weeks.
