Leonard Garcia vs. Alex Caceres Added to UFC on Versus 5

via i53.tinypic.com

The card for UFC on Versus 5, which comes to the Bradley Center in Milwaukee on August 14th, is rapidly filling up, and the UFC announced another addition this morning, with Alex Caceres set to take on Leonard Garcia in featherweight action:

The Ultimate Fighter 12's Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres will look for his first UFC win on August 14th in Milwaukee, when he faces veteran action hero Leonard "Bad Boy" Garcia in a bout verbally agreed to late Tuesday night.

Both men are likely in desperate need of a win here, as despite his aggressiveness and controversial split decision victories, Garcia has shown little to suggest he can hang with any of the UFC's most talented featherweights, while many argued that Caceres didn't even deserve a UFC roster spot to begin with.  These factors should combine to provide some fireworks on August 14th.

Leonard "Bad Boy" Garcia (23-7-1)
Loss Chan Sung Jung (submission - twister) - UFN 24
Win Nam Phan (split decision) - TUF 12 Finale
Loss Mark Hominick (splt decision) - WEC 51
Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres (7-3)
Loss Mackens Semerzier (submission - rear naked choke) - UFN 24
Win Jahmal McLennan (TKO) - G Force Fights: Bad Blood 3
Loss Matt McCook (submission - armbar) - WFC: Battle of the Bay 8
