According to ProElite, TUF Alumni Chris Leben will take on Alessio “Legionarius” Sakara March 1 at UFC 82 in Columbus, Ohio. Leben will look to stay in the win column, following his miraculous one punch KO of Terry Martin at UFC Fight Night 11.
Sakara who trains with American Top Team, is coming of a first round TKO win over James Lee at UFC 80.
“Yes, we fight Sakara in Columbus.” said manager T. Jay Thompson when contacted for comment via e-mail.
Thompson, who is also the promoter of the ICON Sport promotion in Hawaii, also added, “Chris has been in training camp for the last four weeks and is excited to test himself against Sakara.”
