According to a recent interview from Thales Leites, the former UFC middleweight contender has rejoined the UFC after going 4-0 outside of the octagon. Leites says that he was offered another contract with the UFC, and that he should be getting the call about an opponent shortly. The most logical place for Leites would be for him to end up on the UFC 163: Aldo Vs Pettis card set for Rio, but nothing has been confirmed by the UFC brass yet.
Leites is hoping to get on the card because he trains with Aldo, and he will get a chance to fight in front of his home city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. GloboTV was the first to report the news.
