A report has come out that confirms heavyweights Brendan Schaub and Chris Tuchscherer will be squaring off on the UFC’s July 3rd show.
Every year the UFC holds an event on Independence weekend and this year will be no different as the octagon will keep fans in Las Vegas entertained.
Earlier we reported that Nate Marquardt vs. Alessio Sakara was also added to the card as a middleweight match-up.
Schaub will likely be favored heading into the heavyweight clash.
UFC 116 is believed to be headlined by the Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin heavyweight title unification bout. The contest will mark Lesnar’s first fight in a year after miraculously surviving a life-threatening bout with diverticulitis.
