Thiago Silva is back.

The former UFC light-heavyweight contender has signed an exclusive multi-fight contract with World Series of Fighting, according to WSOF president Ray Sefo. Silva will be a part of a four-man light-heavyweight tournament to crown the promotion’s inaugural 205-pound champion. Sefo said Silva will fight Ronny Markes in the semi-finals of the tournament, while the recently unretired Matt Hamill will face a yet-to-be announced fighter in the other semi-final. The winner of the tournament will win the belt.

Both tournament fights will take place on March 28 in a card headlined by Justin Gaethje vs. Luis Palomino for the WSOF lightweight title. The venue for the event, which will air live on NBCSN, has yet to be finalized.
