Felipe Silva has a new company to call home.

The Brazilian lightweight, who competed three times under the UFC banner between 2016 and 2018, inked a deal with Bahrain-based MMA promotion Brave Combat Federation, sources told MMA Fighting.

Brave CF has yet to announce its next events, but Silva is expected to make his promotional debut in August.

Silva (8-2) signed with the UFC after compiling a 7-0 record six stoppage wins around South America and Europe, and impressed with a 73-second knockout over Shane Campbell in his Octagon debut.

After a long layoff, the CM System talent was finished by Mairbek Taisumov and Claudio Puelles before parting ways with the UFC.
