The UFC seems to be in ‘UFC 164“ mode as rumors are starting to swirl about another expected bout for the card scheduled for August 31 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Heavyweights Ben Rothwell and heavyweight-turned-light heavyweight-turned-heavyweight Brandon Vera have agreed to fight on the card. While Rothwell is trying to rebound from his submission loss to Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC On FX 7, Vera will be fighting as a heavyweight for the first time in more than five years. It’s also important to note that this will be Vera’s first bout in just about a year and the last time we saw him lose via TKO to Mauricio Rua.
The UFC has made no announcement in regards to the fight as of the time of publication, and MMAJunkie was the first to report the fight. Obviously, there is no word as to where it would appear on the card.
