On a busy news day for the UFC, with multiple fights confirmed for upcoming pay-per-views including UFCs 98 and 99, it appears that another fight is being set for UFC 99 in Cologne Germany. Veterans Alan Belcher and Alessio Sakara are in negotiations for a Middleweight tilt to take place at the event, according to MMAWeekly. Both fighters are known for their striking, so it is expected that this bout will take place primarily on the feet.
In his last fight, at UFC 93, Belcher picked up a somewhat of a surprise victory over highly touted UFC newcomer Denis Kang. The victory came via guillotine choke in the third round, after falling behind on the cards for the first two rounds of the fight, making him 5-3 in his UFC career.
Sakara is coming off of a first round knock out over UFC newcomer Joe Vedepo at UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs. Neer. However Sakara has had an up and down career with the UFC, bringing him to a 4-4-1 UFC record going into the June bout with Belcher.
