Welterweights Thiago Alves and Matt Brown will square off in August, as MMAFighting.com reported over the weekend.
The card, UFC on FOX Sports 1, takes place August 17 from Boston’s TD Garden.
Alves is set to return for the first time since early in 2012, as he underwent surgery to repair his PCL and ACL in his knee, along with a torn pectoral muscle. “The Pitbull” is 19-9 in his career, and 2-2 in his last four.
Brown, meanwhile, has won five straight, including a recent win over Jordan Mein. He is 17-11 in his career.
