The UFC has offered up yet another fight announcement, this one for UFC 137 on October 29th. It will be a light heavyweight battle between Brandon Vera and Eliot Marshall. Here's what they had to say:
Vera was released from the UFC after his lopsided decision loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 125 on January, but was given a reprieve due to Silva failing a drug test. The result was changed to a no-contest, and Vera was given another fight. He hasn't won a bout in almost two years. Marshall was released from the UFC following a split-decision loss to Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC on Versus 1, but was brought back as a late replacement to face Luis Cane at UFC 128. He was defeated in the first round by Cane, but has been given another chance. The fight is a must-win for both men if they wish to continue plying their trade in the UFC.
