UFC 148 Update: John Alessio vs. Shane Roller Added

A lightweight scrap between John Alessio and Shane Roller has been added to UFC 148. The UFC confirmed the bout yesterday.

Roller, a 3x All-American wrestler from Oklahoma State, will be looking to stop a three-fight losing streak and keep his job with the company. Roller’s last loss was to fast-rising Michael Johnson at UFC on Fox 2.

Alessio will be looking for his first UFC win in his fourth stint with the promotion. Alessio most recently dropped a unanimous decision to Mark Bocek at UFC 145.

UFC 148 takes place July 7 live from Las Vegas and will be headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. The long-awaited bout is a rematch of their UFC 117 fight, which Silva won by triangle choke.
