Brazilian returns to the cage

UFC welterweight Thiago Alves will welcome Papy Abedi to the promotion at UFC 138.

The promotion announced the news on Tuesday night.

Once the division’s top contender, Alves looks to redeem himself after losing to rising prospect Rick Story at UFC 130. Prior to that contest, the Brazilian striker defeated John Howard to end a two-fight losing streak that included losses to Georges St. Pierre and Jon Fitch.

While Alves looks to take a step back towards contention, Abedi looks to introduce himself to UFC fans worldwide. He has yet to fight any notable mixed martial artist during his career, but his career record stands at 8-0, having won every single fight he has competed in since his debut in 2006.

UFC 138 is set for Birmingham, England on November 5 and features a main event between middleweight contenders Chris Leben and Mark Munoz.
