Rousimar Palhares, the “Toquinho”, has a new adversary.
Alleging problems with documentation, Alessio Sakara was substituted by Lucio Linhares (following a source close to the athlete). Lucio is a Jiu-Jitsu black belt of the Alliance Team and has made his mark in M-1, where he conquested a sequence of five consecutive victories.

Rousimar Palhares is completely recovered from his surgery and is training hard at Brazilian Top Team in Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro - Brazil.

This is one more great confrontation in the UFC between Brazilians.

Ah. Glad he's recovered, and it'll be great to see him in a fight against a fellow black belt. I love seeing Toquinho work on the ground, his fight with Henderson, for example, was frustrating for me to watch.

Thanks for the update, mang.

Tough fight for both guys. Linhares is a legit BJJ BB with constantly improving striking. Couple fights ago he rocked Sean Salmon badly before choking him out. Linhares is much taller than Toquinho and has better boxing.

I honestly haven't seen any of Linhares' fights, so how is his takedown defense and is he stronger from top or guard?

He trains with good finnish wrestlers so his wrestling is pretty good. I'd say on the ground his best weapon is GnP which he uses to set up a choke or armbar.
