UFC on Versus 5: Leonard Garcia vs Alex Caceres booked for Aug. 14 in Milwaukee

via <a href=""></a>

Fun, fun.

A couple of featherweight bangers have verbally agreed to square off, as Leonard Garcia is set to take on Alex Caceres at the upcoming UFC on Versus 5 event going down Aug. 14 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The promotion brought word of the pending match-up earlier today.

Garcia, who hasn't won consecutive fights since 2008 but whose job will never be in jeopardy on account of his rock 'em sock 'em style, was last in the cage suffering a spine shattering submission loss at the hands of Chan Sung Jung.

"The Korean Zombie" wrapped up "Bad Boy" for the first Twister tapout finish in UFC history. It also represented the rare submission posterization. 

Recovery starts in Milwaukee against starving artist "Bruce Leeroy."

Caceres advanced to the quarterfinals of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 by submitting Jeff Lentz, however; "Bruce Leeroy" came up short in the semifinals when he was defeated by Michael Johnson via unanimous decision.

As with most entertaining but inexperienced fighters out of the TUF house, he was given a chance to redeem himself against Mackens Semerzier back in March at UFC Fight Night 24.

He was choked out inside of four minutes.

Never mind that, though, he's back and ready to get at 'em up in "Brew City."

UFC on Versus 5 will feature a bevy of marquee match ups, including Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle in the main event of the evening, as well as Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson and Stephan Bonnar vs. Karlos Vemola.
