Erick Silva vs. Rick Story headlines TUF Brasil finale

Looking for his third straight win in the UFC, Erick Silva has a good chance of returning to the top 15 of the middleweight division. Silva will face Rick Story, currently ranked #11 in the division, in the main event at the TUF Brazil 4 Finale this June.

Erick Silva, who has 18 wins and five losses in his career, will make his 11th return to the UFC octagon and his second in 2015. Following a TKO loss to Matt Brown last May in what was an exciting fight, Silva returned to the win column back in December when he defeated Mike Rhodes via first round submission. His second and most recent win came in his last appearance when he defeated Josh Koscheck, also by first round submission, at UFC Rio 6 last month in Maracanãzinho.

Rick Story will also look to continue his two-fight win streak, having fought last October where he won a split decision over highly touted prospect, Gunnar Nelson, at Fight Night 53. Prior to that Story defeated Leonardo Mafra Texeira via submission. The two wins put story back on the winning track after losing a split decision to TUF 17 winner, Kelvin Gastelum.

The TUF Brazil 4 Finale takes place on June 27 in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium.
