Cagepotato.com is reporting that Brandon Vera will take on Keith Jardine at an upcoming UFC event. Cagepotato says an unnamed source has confirmed the fight. However, MMATraining.com has learned that one source may be Jardine himself, who announced this during a radio interview just this morning.
Jardine, is coming off a Knock out loss to Wanderlei Silva at UFC 84. The fight lasted only 36 seconds and it was reported that Jardine went to hospital afterwards. Jardine has been given some difficult opponents in his last few fights and it looks like that trend will continue.
Vera is coming off a win in his first MMA fight at 205 lbs over Reese Andy, however he was criticized for looking lackluster in his performance. The former Heavyweight fighter said he wanted to move back up to the Heavies, but it looks as though he will stay at 205.
At least for now.
Rumours are that this fight could come as early as UFC 89, which takes place October 18 in Birmingham, England.
