Nine bouts official for UFC 102: Couture vs. Nogueira

Nine bouts are set for UFC 102 "Couture vs Nogueira" on August 29 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon.

In supporting role of the main event featuring former champions Randy Couture vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Keith Jardine will take on Thiago Silva in a light-heavyweight bout.

Silva had been preparing for Forrest Griffin at UFC 101 but was matched with Keith Jardine when the UFC decided to instead pit Griffin against Anderson Silva.

Jardine (14-5-1) is coming off a loss via unanimous decision to Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the Fight of the Night at UFC 96. While Jardine has four losses under his belt as a UFC fighter, he has never suffered back-to-back losses.

Thiago Silva (13-1) suffered the first loss of his career in January when he was knocked out by Lyoto Machida with a second left in the first round. Only once in his career has Silva taken a fight to a decision.
