Don't think for a moment this one won't be personal.

Thiago Silva (14-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and Brandon Vera (12-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC), who first met in a UFC 125 bout that was eventually ruled a "no contest," will fight again on May 15 in Fairfax, Va.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported, the UFC is expected to hold an event at this city's Patriot Center, though UFC executives have yet to reveal the venue for the card or where the action will be broadcast.

Nevertheless, the UFC announced the matchup early Thursday morning.

Silvas a beast but B Vera looked pretty good against Eliot Marshall. Will be an intresting rematch.

The first time they fought the fight was terrible so why do it again. Drugs or not, Thiago wins this one the same way as last time. Adios Vera!

which gets cut first?

Vera's nose? or Vera's job?

Thiago may have ring rust, but they give him the perfect opponent. Vera's words of late will only motivate Thiago to remind Brandon of what happened the last time around.

I am all about this in every way. I want Silva back in the UFC since he is an exciting fighter. I want Vera cut because he is boring as hell with his clinch against the cage waste time strategy. I want to see Silva do this without any form of PEDs. So much awesomeness in just one fight.

This is so stupid. Why have a rematch? I'd rather see both these guys against different fighters. I really wish the UFC wasn't doing this. Silva will win in the same fashion he did last time.

I'm not a fan of either fighter.

I think Vera knows he is done and he is simply seeking to gain a little bit of dignity by calling out Silva. These 'Revenge' fights are usually the last moments of a fighter's career.
