The Brazilian based Fight 2 Night promotion will see it’s November 4th event being headlined by a pair of UFC veterans as Thiago Silva faces Rameau Thierry Sokoudju in a light heavyweight division fight.
Silva has only won just one of three fights since getting released by the UFC, defeating Stav Economou, while suffering defeats to Teddy Holder and Marcus Sursa. Silva, during his seven year run in the UFC, earned some notable victories over James Irvin, Houston Alexander, Keith Jardine and Matt Hamill.
It has been nearly a decade since Sokoudjou last competed in the UFC, but he has spent time competing in Strikeforce, Bellator MMA, DREAM and a host of other organizations. Sokoudjou defeated Kazuhiro Nakamura to get his only UFC win, while suffering defeats to Lyoto Machida and Luiz Cane.
The card will also see UFC veteran Danny Mitchell competing in the co-main event against Leo Leite, that bout will be contested at middleweight.
Mitchell went winless during his two fight stint in the UFC, but he will be entering this fight on the strength of a three fight winning streak. Leite is currently undefeated as a professional MMA fighter and he is the current Legacy Fighting Championships Middleweight Champion.
Fight 2 Night: Silva vs. Sokoudjou takes place on Friday, November 4th from a location to be announced in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil with Thiago Silva and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou headlining.
