UFC 134

UFC 134: Silva vs. Okami 2 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on August 27, 2011 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The event will be the second that the UFC has hosted in Brazil, since 1998's UFC 17.5: Ultimate Brazil.


UFC 1, 2, and 4 Tournament winner Royce Gracie was linked to the event, but the rumors were refuted by UFC president Dana White.

Maiquel Falcão was scheduled to take on Tom Lawlor at this event, but was released from the promotion in regard to a 2002 assault charge. Lawlor has now been moved to UFC on Versus 5, where he is taking on Kyle Noke.

Mackens Semerzier was expected to face Yuri Alcantara at the event, but was replaced by UFC newcomer Antonio Carvalho. However, Carvalho suffered an injury as well, and has been forced out of the bout. He will be replaced by newcomer Felipe Arantes.

Alexandre Ferreira was expected to face Rousimar Palhares at this event. However, Ferreira was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Dan Miller.

Raphael Assunção was rumored to face Darren Uyenoyama at this event. However, due to Uyenoyama's contractual issues with Shooto, the bout was never signed. Assunção will instead face 15 year veteran Johnny Eduardo.

Mike Swick was scheduled to make his return against debuting Erick Silva on this card. However, on August 4, 2011, it was announced that Swick had to withdraw from the bout due to a knee injury and was replaced by Luis Ramos.
