Thiago Silva is expected to return to action this fall against Stanislav Nedkov. The bout is rumored for UFC 153 on October 13 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Silva returned from a suspension earlier this year, falling to Alexander Gustafsson. Since winning his first 13 fights, Silva has gone just 1-2 with one no-contest.
Nedkov is 12-0 in his MMA career, including a win over Luiz Cane via knockout last year.
