The UFC on Fuel 6 card is one match closer to being finalized with the addition of Thiago Silva (14-2-1 NC) vs. Stanislav Nedkov (12-0).
Sherdog Rewind tweeted earlier that the match had been added.
Glenn Robinson tells us that Thiago Silva will return on the November show in Macau to face Stanislav Nedkov.
In Silva's last three fights he has lost twice and one of his wins was overturned after it was revealed he falsified a recent drug test and was handed a one year suspension. The undefeated Nedkov won his UFC debut in August 2011. He was supposed to fight at UFC 142, but visa problems forced him to pull from the fight.
The show will be the first time the UFC hosts a show in China and will air on November 10.
