Matt Serra protege Pete “Drago” Sell will reportedly look to continue his winning ways at welterweight when he takes on fellow former “Ultimate Fighter” cast member Matt Brown at UFC 96 on March 7 in Columbus, Ohio.

The news comes from MMA Weekly, which has confirmed the bout with sources close to Sell himself. The bout will likely take place as part of UFC 96’s non-televised preliminary card.

Sell was brought back into the UFC despite losing four straight fights in the promotion for UFC 90 in October, where he picked up his first win in over two years in the form of an unanimous decision over Josh Burkman.

Report: Sell-Burkman Set for UFC 90

A welterweight bout between two fighters in dire need of a victory, Matt Serra-trained Pete Sell and Team Quest product Josh Burkman, will reportedly take place when the Ultimate Fighting Championship travels to the suburbs of Chicago for UFC 90: Silva vs. Cote on October 25th.

Serra confirmed that Sell would be taking on Burkman during a recent interview with TriStateFighter.com. Sell, who fights out of Long Island, has not fought since being knocked out by Nate Quarry at UFC Fight Night 11 in September of last year. It was Sell’s third straight UFC loss.

Burkman has now dropped three out of his last four bouts. Following a disappointing performance against Mike Swick at UFC Fight Night 12, in which he lost a majority decision, Burkman was submitted by Dustin Hazelett in the second round of their bout at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale. Either fighter could easily find themselves fighting in smaller shows if they lose in this one.

News and Notes

- Sherdog is reporting that Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and HDNet, is currently in discussions with officials connected to Fedor Emelianenko about signing the heavyweight free agent:

“I am in ongoing discussions with some of his people,” Cuban revealed in an e-mail interview that will be published on Sherdog.com later this week.

Cuban plans on possibly using Fedor in many of the MMA promotions he currently broadcasts events for on HDNet:

“We would work with his promoters to place him in fights from affiliated promoters or in fights we promote ourselves,” said Cuban, who plans on partnering with established MMA organizations to fill the weekly quota of bouts HDNet would need for its successful Friday Fight Night series.

- Sergei Kharitonov’s contract with K-1 states that he will be able to compete in both K-1 kickboxing matches and Hero’s MMA bouts.

- Masakazu Imanari and Zelg Galesic have both been removed from the Cage Rage 23 card set to take place on September 22nd.

Imanari was forced to pull out after suffering a shoulder injury during a recent training session. He will be replaced by Chris Brennan. Galesic pulled out of his bout after signing a new contract with K-1. Matt Ewin will be taking his place against Alex Reid. The bout will still be a title fight while Brennan-Silva will now take place at 155 lbs.
