Earlier today it was effectively confirmed that Anderson Silva will fight Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC 162. There's more news coming in that another Silva is expected to fight on this card, as Thiago Silva fights Rafael Cavalcante on July 6th, in a battle of powerful strikers. Via MMA Fighting:

The former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion is expected to meet Thiago Silva at UFC 162 on July 6 in Las Vegas, according to sources close to the fight. The UFC has yet to make the fight official.

Wow UFC is just going crazy with fight announcements this week

This is a tough fight for my boy Thiago, really hopes he pulls it out. He certainly needs a win and a clean post fight drug test or he probably will get cut.

Great fight, hopefully neither piss hot this time around. Is Cavalcante good off his back? I can't remember the last time I saw him on the ground and Silva has a fantastic ground game. I could see Silva being outstruck on the feet.
