    Hot-and-cold Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight Erick Silva will make his way back to the Octagon at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 58 event on FOX Sports 1, when he takes on Mike Rhodes at Jose Correa Arena in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Dec. 20, 2014.

The talented but wildly inconsistent "Indio" has flip-flopped wins and losses dating back to his ZUFFA debut in late 2011, leaving him at just 4-4 under the UFC umbrella.
