by Shawn M. Smith on April 18, 2011

Today, Dana White announced several of the bouts for the event that will take place in Rio de Janeiro in August, UFC 134: Rio. UFC 134: Rio will feature many of the country’s “most talented fighters,” including a UFC Middleweight Championship bout between Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami. UFC Legend Royce Gracie is rumored to fight on the show as well, although his involvement and opponent have yet to be named.

Forrest Griffin shocked the world when he spoiled the heavily-favored Pride legend Mauricio “Shogun” Rua’s UFC debut in 2007. Now Shogun will have the chance for revenge in his home country as the two will rematch August 27. “These two former world champions always give it their all and this could be one of the most exciting fights of the year,” said White.

In a dynamic lightweight matchup, Spencer Fisher is slated to take on Thiago Tavares. In light-heavyweight news, undefeated Stanislav Nedkov will take on devastating Brazilian striker Luiz “Banha” Cane.
