MMA fans were buzzing a few weeks ago when news broke that the UFC had signed one the top flyweight prospects in the world: Jussier da Silva. Now, it appears that he has a date and opponent for his Octagon debut as Tatame is reporting that he'll face TUF 14 winner, John Dodson:

Jussier ‘Formiga’ da Silva will make his UFC debut on October. The former Shooto champion, fighter, who was considered the best flyweight in the world years ago, will have his chance on the show against John Dodson at October 5th, for UFC on FX 5.

Awesome match! Da Silva's only loss is to Uncle Creepy, and he's got some good momentum going into this. Dodson is coming in hot too after his fight with Tim Elliott, which was a great show.

Could this be a #1 contender match?

The average fan probably doesn't realize what a big matchup this is for the division. Da Silva has to be top 5 in the division and Dodson is probably not far behind, both with their best years ahead of them.

Poor Tachi Palace.

Glad to see Jussier in the UFC getting matched up like he should.

Tough first fight for Da Silva, Dodson is a beast if Dodson can stuff the takedowns he will more than likely get the win.

Da Silva needs to get the fight to the mat as fast as he possibly can
