The carioca fighter Thales Leites is back in the UFC. Athlete team Nova União, who has challenged fellow Anderson Silva for the middleweight belt, has confirmed his return to the organization in an interview with COMBATE.COM on Thursday.
- Has signed about a week and a half, and my prediction is to fight when they call me. Would you like to fight in an event in Brazil and not hide the desire to fight at UFC Rio, where my training partner Jose Aldo will make the main event, and of course for being in my city. Would combine business with pleasure and accomplish a dream, returning to UFC in Rio would be very pleasurable - said.

I'm happy to see him back in the UFC. If he improves on his wrestling skills, he could be a threat at 185.

He's a ufc level fighter. I think he proved that in his time away from the organization, posting a 6-1 record over some notable ufc vets. It's good to see him back.

I'm kinda surprised by this, he hasn't fought in over a year and it's not like he's an injury replacement so kinda random lol.
He has had a few quality wins outside the UFC and his Jits is great so I think he'll stick around this time

Someone cancel the Weidman fight. This guy needs to rematch Anderson immediately.

If you rewatch the first fight with the sound off, you'll see that leites was robbed of the ud. Great time for a rematch!

I don't really get why he's back but it isn't like mw is super stacked
