Welterweights Thiago Alves and Paulo Thiago are likely to square off at UFC 107 on December 12 in Memphis, Tennessee, according to MMAjunkie.
Both Alves (16-5) and Thiago (11-1) suffered unanimous decision losses in their most-recent bouts last month at UFC 100, with Alves dropping a decision to welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, while Thiago was topped by Jon Fitch.
Prior to the losses, Alves had won seven-straight fights, including victories over Josh Koscheck, Karo Parisyan, and Matt Hughes, while Thiago improved his undefeated record to 11-0 with an upset knockout of Josh Koscheck in his UFC debut.
UFC 107 is headlined by Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Rashad Evans and is also rumored to feature a heavyweight matchup between Frank Mir and Cheick Kongo.
