UFC 101 finalized with addition of Thales Leites vs. Alessio Sakara

The UFC has made the last bout slated for UFC 101 official as Thales Leites is set to face off with Alessio Sakara on the preliminary card of the evening in a middleweight match-up.

UFC 101 is set to take place at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 8.

Leites recently had a five fight win streak in the UFC brought to a halt in a lackluster championship bid against UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 97.

Sakara is looking to break through the .500 mark with the UFC as he has gone 4-4 in his career in the Octagon with his most recent appearance being an impressive head kick knockout over Joe Vedepo at UFC Fight Night 15.
