I’m fighting Brandon Vera, UFC on fuel 4

As of now, this is the only announced match up for the upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 4 card, scheduled for July 14. We await a further announcement from UFC executives for a booked venue and location for the event.
The rising prospect Te Huna is currently riding a two fight win streak, successfully knocking out Aaron Rosa and former Ring Of Combat stand out; Ricardo Romero. Te Huna has collated a 3-1 record in his young UFC stint, with the lone loss coming to this Saturday’s main attraction; Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson. The UFC light heavyweight division is a shark tank of talent, Te Huna will be looking to make a real statement in order to catapult himself into the divisions deep end.
“The Truth” Brandon Vera will be looking to string his first two consecutive wins together since August 2009. After an engaging back and forth clash with Ultimate Fighter contestant Eliot Marshall, and a no contest ruling with Thiago Silva, Vera is in desperate need of building up some momentum in an effort to reinvigorate his roller-coaster UFC career.
