After extending UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva the five round distance for the first time this past April, Thales Leites will waste no time stepping back into the Octagon to begin on his road back to a title shot as he takes on hard-hitting Alessio Sakara in preliminary action on August 8th’s UFC 101 card at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.

Also added to the now complete card is an intriguing lightweight rematch between veteran Aaron Riley and young gun Shane Nelson. The two first met at UFC 96 in March, with Nelson winning via a controversial first round stoppage. Riley gets his chance to even the score on August 8th.
