SAKARA JOINS ATT
A change might do him good.
Italian-Brazilian bruiser Alessio Sakara has committed to American Top Team, a spokesman for the Coconut Creek, Fla. team confirmed Wednesday.
Though he sports a 6-1 pro boxing record, Sakara has yet to find his stride in the cage. He (11-6) has gone 2-3 in the Octagon since his October 2005 debut against Ron Faircloth at UFC 55 yielded a no contest from a low blow.
The 26-year-old Sakara went toe-to-toe with Houston Alexander last September at UFC 75 in London, England, and crumbled with a knee in just over a minute.
