Thiago Tavares vs. Willamy Freire at UFC on Versus 2 in Salt Lake City

UFC lightweight, Thiago Tavares will return to the octagon to face fellow Brazilian, Willamy “Chiquerim” Freire at UFC on Versus 2 in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 1st, 2010.

Injuries have kept Tavares sidelined since he picked up a majority draw against Nik Lentz in January. He was forced out of his UFC 114 bout with Melvin Guillard last month after hyper-extending his elbow.

Nova Unaio member, Freire is currently riding a 11 fight winning streak, with his last win coming via split decision against Yusuke Endo at a Shooto event in Japan.
