UFC 208 has received a very interesting, middleweight fight, as the promotion’s announced that former champion Anderson Silva will take on fellow contender, Derek Brunson.

The 41 year-old Silva (33-8) will be looking for his first win since 2012. The Brazilian legend did earn a decision win over Nick Diaz in 2015, but that result was overturned to a no-contest, after Silva tested positive for banned substances. More recently Silva’s been decisioned by Daniel Cormier and Michael Bisping.

The 33 year-old Brunson (16-4) was stopped by Robert Whittaker in his last fight, which took place in November. Prior to that the wrestler had won five in a row.

UFC 208 will take place on February 11th in Brooklyn, New York.
