InTheGuard.TV is reporting that UFC middleweight Rousimar "Toquinho" Palhares has drawn a new opponent for the TUF 10 Finale in December. Toquinho was originally slated to take on Alessio Sakara, but the Italian will apparently have to drop out of the bout due to "documentation" issues, paving the way for the UFC to bring in the ultra-agressive and BJJ black-belt, Lucio Linhares as a new signing and replacement for Sakara:

Well Lucio Linhares has good BJJ but that doesnt mean his MMA BJJ is very good. Palhares has very good MMA BJJ, strong wrestling, solid chin, and good GnP. I would easily put Palhares is the top 10 at MW.

And I see him as a way of discrediting the M-1 guys by the UFC.
