It appears the UFC has switched gears away from the proposed super fight and opted to put middleweight champion Anderson Silva in against the last man to technically hold a win over him, Yushin Okami, at UFC Rio in Brazil on Aug. 27.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the bout to USA Today on Wednesday.

Okami earned a title shot by defeating Nate Marquardt last year, but after Silva dispatched of Vitor Belfort in February, most thought the next fight on the horizon for the champ would be a battle to be declared the sport’s undisputed pound-for-pound best fighter in a match-up against St-Pierre.
