The upcoming UFC 137 fight card added new fights on Saturday with lightweights Dennis Siver facing Sam Stout, while Brandon Vera gets back in action against Eliot Marshall.
UFC officials announced the new match-ups late Saturday night.
Dennis Siver will look to keep his current momentum going when he returns at UFC 137 and faces a very tough test in fellow striker Sam Stout.
Stout earned ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors in his last bout, putting Yves Edwards to sleep with a thunderous punch that some have called one of the greatest KO’s in UFC history.
Also added to the upcoming Oct 29 card in Las Vegas are light heavyweights Brandon Vera and Eliot Marshall, with both fighters in desperate need for a win.
Vera got second life in the UFC after his last opponent Thiago Silva tested positive for banned substances. The loss originally cost Vera his job, but the UFC gave him another chance after Silva’s transgression.
Eliot Marshall will also be seeking redemption after getting a call back to the big show on short notice at UFC 128, but fell to Brazilian striker Luiz Cane.
It may be a win or go home situation for both Vera and Marshall when they meet in October.
