In the first bout announced for UFC 133, rumored to take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on August 6th, middleweights Jorge Rivera and Alessio Sakara will finally collide after two previous attempts to book the matchup (at UFC 118 and UFC 122) fell through due to assorted injuries and illnesses. Both men are looking for redemption after losses in their last bouts, with Rivera getting blitzed by Michael Bisping in a TKO loss at UFC 127, in February. and Sakara getting out-wrestled by blue-chip prospect, Chris Weidman at UFC on Versus 3 in March. The UFC announced the booking on their website today, but the event date and location have not yet been made official:

"Better late than never, verbal agreements are in for what should be an action-packed match between Alessio Sakara and Jorge Rivera at UFC 133," said UFC president Dana White today.
