An opponent for Middleweight UFC veteran Gegard Mousasi has been named for UFC Fight Night 83 taking place in London.

Mousasi posted on his Facebook page that he will be meeting Thales Leites in the Octagon on Feb. 27 but later deleted the post.

Initially, Mousasi was set to face Michael Bisping at the London event. However, it was later announced that Bisping would welcome former middleweight champion Anderson Silva back to the Octagon after being out on a 1-year suspension for testing positive for banned substances at UFC 183.
