Ricardo Almeida will be out for revenge when he locks horns with Matt Hughes in a welterweight showdown that is now set for the upcoming UFC 117: "Silva vs. Sonnen" pay-per-view (PPV) event planned for the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on Aug. 7.
The promotion today made the long-rumored 170-pound match up official.
"Cachorrão" should be in high spirits, considering he's the winner of three straight. The grappling wizard recently made Matt Brown look mortal in their 170-pound clash at UFC 111: "St. Pierre vs. Hardy" back in March.
His celebration was short lived, however, as his master and long-time friend, Renzo Gracie, was stopped by the flinty farmboy at UFC 112: "Invincible" earlier this month.
Almeida has looked good since dropping to 170-pounds, but will he be good enough to overcome the former division champion?

Hughes battered Gracie en route to a third round technical knockout stoppage in Abu Dhabi. It was his second straight win since dining on Thiago Alves' knee at UFC 85: "Bedlam" in June 2008.
The former champ has been particular about his opponents since entering the twilight of his career, but doesn't seem to mind adding another Gracie Jiu-Jitsu fighter to his combat resume.
UFC 117 will feature the put-up-or-shut-up middleweight title fight between Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva in the main event of the evening. A welterweight rematch between top contenders Jon Fitch and Thiago Alves is also expected to go down.


I think that Hughes could end up stealing this, he gets up for these fights and a motivated Matt Hughes is dangerous, if it goes to the ground the subs could def favor Almeida.

Thoughts???

I think Hughes will win this fight and I wouldnt consider it a steal by any stretch of the imagination. The dude's only recent losses are to GSP and Thiago Alves, thats the number one and number three welterweights in the world.

Almeida will take this one imo.
I think he holds the advantages reguarding striking and grappling, plus he has a size and stregth advantage imo.
Hughes' advantage at wrestling is irrelevant in this fight: i don't even think he would wanna take Almeida down.

Almeida by stoppage imo.
