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 â€œBruce Leroyâ€, also came up short at Fight Night 24, as he dropped his promotional debut to Mackens Semerzier by way of first round submission. Caceresâ€™ 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.
