One-time UFC middleweight title contender Thales Leites will return to the Octagon this August, taking on Tom Watson at UFC 163.
UFC officials announced the fight on Thursday, as it joins a growing list of bouts for the August 3 event from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Since that time, the Brazilian has posted a 6-1 mark, including four submission wins.
Watson (16-5) sports a 1-1 mark in his two UFC appearances. He defeated Stanislav Nedkov earlier this year.
