UFC veteran Thiago Silva now has a date for his return to the cage. Fight Time Promotions on Friday announced that the Brazilian light heavyweight will compete on the Florida-based organization's Aug. 29 card, Fight Time 20, at War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Specifics of the bout, including Silva's opponent, were not disclosed. Silva, 31, was arrested in February after allegedly threatening brandishing a gun and threatening people at Pablo Popovitch Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center in Fort Lauderdale. He was subsequently released by the UFC, for whom he had competed since 2007 and had compiled a record of 7-3 with two no-contests. Silva was released from jail on $25,000 bond in March; according to a report from Fox Sports, he returned to training with his Blackzilians teammates last month. Fight Time Promotions is owned by Howard Davis Jr., an Olympic boxing gold medalist and coach at American Top Team, where Silva trained until 2012. The company has featured several recently released UFC fighters, including Vagner Rocha, Yoislandy Izquierdo and Mike Rio. http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/ExUFC-Light-Heavyweight-Thiago-Silva-to-Return-Aug-29-at-Fight-Time-20-in-Florida-69751

There are very few fights I'd like to see Rampage take. But this is one of them.

Excited for the return of Thiago!

You'd think a bigger promotion would pick up a guy who's got a court case looming for threatening someone with a firearm? Really? Phone Post 3.0

I'm sure that someone will pick him up if he keeps his nose clean for a while after being sentenced. We'll see him in WSOF or Bellator. Thiago silva is a killer. I think that they would be dumb not to. Phone Post 3.0

This fight was made years ago in the UFC, but due to injuries and match changes, it never happened.

It was around the time of A.Silva/Griffin

Bellator would be crazy not to go after Thiago. Him vs Rampage is just about the only fight I'm still interesting in seeing Rampage in.

Ridiculous.

He may kill the other guy.

A bigger promotion really needs to sign him. Phone Post 3.0
