The UFC has been filling up their fight cards for their two August pay-per-view events, and now they’ve begun the process of filling up that month’s free event on Versus.
The organization on Tuesday announced that a welterweight bout between Amir Sadollah and Duane “Bang” Ludwig, as well as a lightweight bout between T.J. O’Brien and Cole Miller will take place at UFC on Versus 5.
The date and location for the event hasn’t officially been revealed, but it’s expected to take place on August 14 from Milwaukee, Wis.
Sadollah and Ludwig were supposed to meet at UFC Fight Night 24 last month, but an injury to Ludwig took him off of the card. Sadollah instead took on Ultimate Fighter nine runner-up DaMarques Johnson, registering his most impressive win in the Octagon with a second round submission due to strikes.
Ludwig will return for the first time since November, where he halted a two-fight losing streak with a win over Nick Osipczak at UFC 122 in November.
O’Brien entered the UFC as a late replacement for Gabe Ruediger at UFC 123 in November, but suffered a second-round TKO loss to Paul Kelly in his debut fight. That loss snapped a six fight win streak.
Miller looks to rebound from a loss to Matt Wiman at UFC Fight for the Troops 2 in January. The loss snapped a two-fight win streak in 2010, submission wins over Dan Lauzon and Ross Pearson.
