Vera And Hamill Likely For UFC 101

Brandon VeraIt looks like Brandon Vera might get a chance to extract a little bit of revenge for his buddy, Mark Munoz, at UFC 101 in Philadelphia this coming August.

Matt “The Hammer” Hamill (6-2) and Brandon “The Truth” Vera (10-3) are set for UFC 101 according to a source close to the event. Hamill also enjoyed victory at UFC 96 (editors note: Vera knocked out Mike Patt during the same event), when he KO’d Mark Munoz in the 1st round for his second win in a row. Contracts have been received and are expected to be signed in the very near future.

I think this is very good matchmaking by Joe Silva, and a win here should be a big step back into contention for either of these fighters. It will be interesting to see if Hamill chooses to use his wrestling background, or if we can expect to see him employ his newfound love for kickboxing against ‘The Truth’. Vera will need to keep this fight on the feet if he expects to take out Hamill and remain on the televised portion of future pay-per-view broadcasts.

The rest of the rumored UFC 101 card can be found in our fight cards section. It’s quietly starting to look very solid.
