I wonder what the odds are for a double DQ from the drug tests?

Rafael 'Feijao' Cavalcante vs. Thiago Silva moved to June's UFC on FUEL TV 10

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Mar 11, 2013 at 5:00 pm ET

A light heavyweight matchup Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante (11-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Thiago Silva (14-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) originally announced for UFC 162 will now take place at UFC on FUEL TV 10.

Brazilian website Tatame.com first reported the switch, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed the move with sources close to the fighters although a reason for the change was not immediately clear.



The change moves the scheduled matchup up just about one month, as UFC 162 is scheduled for July 6 while UFC on FUEL TV 10 takes place June 8 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Brazil. The event's main card airs on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook. The card is expected to feature the finals of "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2."

A former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Cavalcante fights for the first time since having a May 2012 win over Mike Kyle overturned due to failing the post-event drug screen by testing positive for stanozolol. With his suspension complete, "Feijao" now meets Silva, who is also returning to work after a failed post-fight screen. Silva tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his November win over Stanislav Nedkov, and his win was also overturned.

With the change, the UFC on FUEL TV 10 lineup now includes:

• Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Fabricio Werdum
• Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante vs. Thiago Silva*
• John Hathaway vs. Erick Silva
• Caio Magalhaes vs. Karlos Vemola*

* - Not officially announced
