    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]- ALESSIO SAKARA VS ROUSIMAR PALHARES AT UFC 99[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Monday, March 30, 2009 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com [/FONT]

    The card continues to grow for UFC 99 in Germany, as Rousimar "Toquinho" Palhares will return for a middleweight match-up against American Top Team fighter Alessio Sakara. The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by sources close to the fight.

    Palhares, who currently holds a 2-1 record in the Octagon, comes into UFC 99 after a three-round domination of veteran fighter Jeremy Horn in Ireland in January.

    With his only loss coming by way of decision to former Pride champion Dan Henderson, Palhares is seen as a tough competitor for anybody in the UFC. He adds another dangerous jiu-jitsu element to the expanding middleweight division.

    Sakara was originally set to face Alan Belcher on the UFC 99 card, but his opponent instead opted for a bout at UFC 100 against incoming Japanese fighter Yoshihiro Akiyama.

    Now the heavy-handed Italian will face Palhares in a pivotal match-up for his career. He stands at 4-4 in the UFC and wins are the only guarantee to make certain of a return call from the MMA juggernaught.

    The bout between Sakara and Palhares will likely end up on the untelevised, undercard portion of the pay-per-view broadcast. A 195-pound catchweight fight between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva headlines the UFC 99 fight card.

    There's no formal affiliation between both camps besides the head trainers being former students of Carlson IIRC.

    Toquinho is going to rip Sakara's leg off.

    +1 for the Who Z Mare Toe Keen Yo Paul Harris bandwagon.

    Palhares is overrated and sakara's ground game is underrated.

    This will be a better fight than everyone is expecting. Or at least I hope it is.

    I agree. I think Paul Harris takes it, but it's a compelling fight IMO.

    fill me in. Guy was submitted once 7 years ago, and once by an Abu Dhabi champion. Pretty sure he was a brown belt before he got to ATT, and can only have gotten better. Dude isn't a slouch.

    Now his boxing, dude is overrated big time.

    Very wrong. Liborio, Sperry, Busta broke away from Carlson together and formed BTT. Libo moved to Fl and started ATT with the Silviera brother (also Carlson BB's).

    ATT and BTT are brother gyms.

    Lister has shown that he hasn't adapted his grappling prowess well into MMA while Palhares is getting scarier by the fight. Then you got Palhares who's a 185 pound love child between Arona and Imanari being trained by Bustamante and other grappling monsters at BTT. Dude also took the worst of Henderson's shots, kept his composure, even threatening him a few times and ragdolled Horn with those suplexes.

    I know that most of Carlson's students became estranged with him but thought that Liborio did his thing in the US from the start.

    Thanks for the correction.

    If you work like UFC does in pure win loss they prolly should have but Much like Leben when he was getting smashed in every fight when he won he won explosively when he lost he lost explosively.

    Like goodridge win or lose exciting as hell.

    it computes that sakara could have his best jiujitsu showing of his life and will still be outclassed and get tapped the fuck out.
