A light-heavyweight bout between Keith Jardine (14-5-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) and Thiago Silva (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC)
Thiago Silva, an American Top Team fighter, looks to rebound from his first career defeat. After reeling off four-straight wins to start his run in the UFC – and 13-straight victories overall – Silva was knocked out in a January bout with current No. 1 contender Lyoto Machida. He was then scheduled to face Griffin before “The Ultimate Fighter 1″ winner and former champ was instead booked for the non-title fight with Anderson Silva.
Jardine also looks to rebound from a recent loss. Also familiar with UFC card-shuffling, Jardine had been expected to face Luiz Cane at UFC 97 in April, but a series of events led the Greg Jackson’s Mixed Martial Arts fighter instead to a main event showdown with former light-heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 96 in March.
