A key middleweight battle has been booked for June’s UFC 212 pay-per-view event in Brazil.

The UFC announced that former division kingpin Anderson “The Spider” Silva will be squaring off with surging contender Kelvin Gastelum at the June 3 event in Rio de Janeiro.

Anderson Silva was last seen in action at UFC 208 where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Derek Brunson.

Meanwhile, Kelvin Gastelum was last seen in action at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night event, where he scored a stoppage victory over mixed martial arts legend Vitor Belfort.

Who do you think will emerge victorious when Silva and Gastelum lock horns this June in Brazil?
