Previewish – UFC 101 – Thales Leites vs. Alessio Sakara

August 6, 2009

Previewish is a chance to meet the guys on the undercard. It’ll be a great chance to try and get to know the lesser known guys that fill out the spaces in the PPV shows that are created after quick stoppages. Sometimes, they make the PPV worth the buy.

Thales Leites (14-2) vs. Alessio “Legionarius” Sakara (13-7, 1nc)

Middleweights

Weird how the fight world works. In April, Leites (pictured) headlining UFC 97 and fighting Anderson Silva for the middleweight title. Saturday, he’s scheduled for the un-televised undercard. Before his unsuccessful title challenge, Leites had won 4 straight fights. Looks like the UFC wants to see Leites get back on the winning snide.

Sakara is 4-4-1 in the UFC and is riding a 1 fight win streak. He hasn’t made it out of the first round since 2006. (UFC 57) He’s probably still around because his fights are exciting. (Including being on the recieving end of Houston Alexander’s knee.) Dana White says it’s how you fight, not if you win. Then again, maybe they just need an Italian on the roster.
