The Ultimate Fighting Championship has officially announced that Brandon “The Truth” Vera versus Frank Mir is signed. Vera has looked excellent since making his venture into the UFC going 3-0 with victories over Justin Eilers, Assuerio Silva, and Fabiano Scherner. Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir will be in tough as Vera will be his toughest test since returning from his motorcycle accident which forced him to sit out the better part of a year. Since returning Mir is 1-1 with lackluster performances in both fights.
Also on the card will be light heavyweight contest slating UFC veteran James Irvin against newcomer Hector Ramirez. This fight will be Irvin’s first fight back in the UFC since he suffered a tough submission loss to Stephan Bonnar. Since that time Irvin has kept busy fighting outside of the UFC going 2-1-1. Hector Ramirez is a newcomer to the UFC with a record of 6-1-1. Ramirez’s only loss came to UFC light heavyweight contender Rashad Evans.
