After a four-year absence, Thales Leites (20-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) is once again a UFC fighter.

The onetime middleweight title challenger is slated to return to the octagon at UFC 163 against up-and-comer Tom Watson (16-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC), according to UFC officials, who confirmed the matchup to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following a report on Tatame.

UFC 163 takes place Aug. 3 at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The event's pay-per-view main card includes a featherweight title headliner between champion Jose Aldo and Anthony Pettis. Preliminary-card bouts serve on FX and Facebook. It's unknown whether Leites vs. Watson will serve on the main card or prelims.

I don't see why you are surprised he was 7-1 outside the UFC and his only loss he avenged. With that said Leites wins by UD

Not sure what to think about Leites. Haven't kept up with him since he left the UFC.

He dropped off the radar so fast after his uneventful title showing

He's improved the couple times I've watched he looks much more competitive
