A middleweight fiught between Alession Sakara and Joe Vedepo has been added to the card of UFC Fight Night 15, on September 17th. MMAjunkie reports about Vedepo:
Vedepo, a part of the Cedar Rapids-based Team Hardrive MMA, won the Midwest Cage Championship middleweight belt with a June victory over Brian Green (15-10). Both fighters entered the bout knowing that a major-league contract offer could be on the line. The bloody, back-and-forth main-event fight ultimately ended via a third-round verbal submission in favor of Vedepo.
The 25-year-old former light heavyweight and stand-out high school wrestler has never gone to decision; he’s won four fights via knockout and three by submission.
