According to GracieMag, Thales Leites will take on Nate Marquardt at UFC 85, June 7 from the O2 Arena in London, England.

The two were scheduled to meet at UFC 81, but Leites was forced to dropout after suffering a hand injury while training for the fight. MMA veteran Jeremy Horn replaced Leites with only a few days notice, but was quickly submitted by Marquardt with a sick guillotine choke early in the second round.

Here’s what Leites told the mag:

“After waiting for so long, he has been really well studied. I had already seen two of his fights before, I know he’s dangerous, experienced and really aggressive…He knows how to fight standing and on the ground, he’s a tough guy to take down and has a good guillotine.”
