Light heavyweight slugger James Te Huna will return to the octagon in July, and he'll be facing a veteran who will be making his comeback from injury. UFC on Fuel doesn't have a date or location yet, but it has a fight. The source? Te Huna himself tweeted about the fight a little while ago:

Te Huna (14-5) has competed four times in the UFC, picking up three wins. His only loss was to UFC on Fuel 2 main eventer Alexander Gustafsson by first-round submission at UFC 127. His last two bouts have lasted a total of two minutes and fifty-five seconds, with the New Zealand native winning by KO over Ricardo Romero and TKO over Aaron Rosa, respectively.

Excellent match up. If anyone has the ability to take the snooze fest out of a vera fight, its big tuna

Vera might just have the tools to pick up a win in this fight. But he also might have had the tools to pick up a win in every fight he's ever lost. So maybe his tools are broken.

I don't know what is a more apt metaphor for Brandon Vera: an empty toolbox or an amputee trying to handle a hacksaw.

Vera's physical peak was five and six years ago when he had more skill than Fat Mir and Tim Sylvia (and less size). He's still trying to find his way at light heavyweight in a sport that has progressed by miles while he moves only meters.

He's like Arlovski (minus the glass jaw) , he's got all of these skills that he's fairly good at but they don't work together very well.....like Helper and no Hamburger
