James Te Huna To Face Brandon Vera At UFC On Fuel 4 In July

Light heavyweight slugger James Te Huna will return to the octagon in July, and he'll be facing a veteran who will be making his comeback from injury. UFC on Fuel doesn't have a date or location yet, but it has a fight. The source? Te Huna himself tweeted about the fight a little while ago:

Te Huna (14-5) has competed four times in the UFC, picking up three wins. His only loss was to UFC on Fuel 2 main eventer Alexander Gustafsson by first-round submission at UFC 127. His last two bouts have lasted a total of two minutes and fifty-five seconds, with the New Zealand native winning by KO over Ricardo Romero and TKO over Aaron Rosa, respectively.

Vera (12-5, 1 NC) is coming off a close win over Eliot Marshall at UFC 137. Vera won the first two rounds, but Marshall locked him up in a tight armbar in the third that actually broke Vera's arm. Despite that, Vera persevered and ended up picking up a unanimous decision. He had been released from the UFC following a UFC 125 lopsided loss to the other UFC on Fuel 2 main eventer Thiago Silva, but the bout was ruled a no contest when Silva submitted a fake urine sample. Because of this, Vera was given a reprieve.

The bout is expected to be on the main card of UFC on Fuel 4. As mentioned above, a date and location have not been nailed down as of yet but Fuel TV Executive Vice President and General Manager George Greenberg said in a conference call earlier this week that the show would probably take place in July sometime.
