Hamil vs Vera In The Works For UFC101
 
A light heavyweight bout between "The Ultimate Fighter 3" fan favorite Matt Hamill (6-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) and former heavyweight Brandon Vera (10-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) could be added to the upcoming UFC 101 card.

A source close to the bout told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) both fighters have been approached about the fight but that negotiations "remain in the preliminary stages."

MMAMadness.com first reported the possibility of the fight on Sunday.

Although not officially announced, UFC 101 is expected to take place Aug. 8 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.

Hamill last fought in March in front of a hometown crowd at UFC 96 in Columbus, Ohio. Facing former NCAA Division I national wrestling champion Mark Munoz, Hamill scored a dramatic first-round TKO via head kick. It was Hamill's third victory in four fights, and his fifth knockout in six career victories.

He could now face Vera, a former top heavyweight contender who's found some success at light heavyweight. After back-to-back losses to heavyweights Tim Sylvia and Fabricio Werdum, Vera made the drop to 205 pounds and defeated Reese Andy via lackluster unanimous decision. He then suffered a split decision loss to Keith Jardine but rebounded at UFC 96 for a dominant second-round TKO over Michael Patt via leg kicks.

Either fighter could enter the fringe of the light-heavyweight division's title picture with a victory.

i like vera but it is too hard to watch a deaf guy lose. i can't root against him. watching hammill's post fight speech when he lost to bisping was really hard to watch

I just don't know if I can take all the 'depends on which Vera shows up' arguments this time around. :sick:
