After a bittersweet 2013, Isaac Vallie-Flagg (14-3-1) will make his return to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 35. Vallie-Flagg has fought just once this year back in February when he won his UFC debut over Yves Edwards. A UFC 161 bout opposite Sam Stout was planned but scrapped before it came to fruition.
Vallie-Flagg’s first fight of 2014 will be against Elias Silverio (9-0).
Silverio had a successful debut in the UFC, beating Joao Zeferino in his home country of Brazil back at back at UFC Fight Night 28. This will be only the second time Silverio has fought outside his native Brazil.
Their bout will likely take place on the undercard to UFC Fight Night 35, which now has twelve bouts confirmed including its main event which is a middleweight fight between Luke Rockhold and Costa Philippou. The event will take place inside the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia.
