Thomson, Fodor meet next month
Thomson revealed the news to Sherdog.com.
The bout will take place on the main card of the September 29 event, which is set for Sacramento, California with a lightweight title bout between champion Gilbert Melendez and top contender Pat Healy.
A former champion, Thomson looks to work his way back to the top and into a fourth fight with champ Melendez. He defeated the Cesar Gracie fighter back in 2008 in their first meeting, but has since lost to him twice, including a split-decision loss in his most recent performance.
Meanwhile, Fodor entered his last contest on a five-fight winning streak, but saw that rampage cut short by the aforementioned Healy. The loss was just his second as a professional.
