On top of the already announced main event of Chris Lytle versus Dan Hardy, and a tantalizing clash pitting Jim Miller against Ben Henderson, UFC officials are now announcing the addition of two sub-lightweight affairs. Leonard Garcia will tangle with TUF alumn Alex Caceres, and bantamweights Joseph Benavidez and Eddie Wineland will toe the line.
Leonard Garcia (15-7-1) will return to the octagon for the first time since submission defeat to Chan Sung Jung, who stunned the world when he secured a twister on the tough Texan at UFC Fight Night 24.
Caceres, best known to the public as “Bruce Leroy”, also came up short at Fight Night 24, as he dropped his promotional debut to Mackens Semerzier by way of first round submission. Caceres’ professional record stands at 4-3, and a loss to the fan favorite Garcia could earn him walking papers.
Joseph Benavidez (14-2) will return to the octagon riding a two fight win streak, while Eddie Wineland (18-7-1) will be seeking personal redemption after losing his UFC debut to Urijah Faber via unanimous decision.
The Bradley Center, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin will host UFC Live 5 on August 14.
