As the summer time cards for the UFC fill up fast, a middleweight bout has been added to UFC 102 tentatively scheduled for August 29 as American Top Team fighter, Wilson Gouveia, will face former WEC middleweight contender, Chael Sonnen.
The bout was confirmed by sources close to the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Thursday.
Gouveia enters the bout in August after a disappointing loss to Nate Marquardt at UFC 95 in February. Prior to that loss, the Brazilian had won his previous two contests at middleweight since dropping from the 205lb weight class.
Chael Sonnen returns to action at UFC 102 after a loss on the same Feb card to submission specialist, Demian Maia, in his return to the Octagon after a stay in the WEC and other organizations over the past few years.
7-3 in his last 10 bouts, Sonnen hopes to get back to the winning side of things when he faces a very well rounded opponent in Wilson Gouveia.
UFC 102 is tentatively scheduled to take place on Aug 29, and rumors have placed the show in Portland, Ore., but nothing has been solidified as far as a definite location at this time.
