A lightweight matchup between longtime vet John Alessio (34-15 MMA, 0-4 UFC) and Team Takedown's Shane Roller (10-6 MMA, 1-3 UFC) has been booked for July's UFC 148 event.

UFC officials today announced the new matchup.

UFC 148 takes place July 7 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view, and FX and Facebook are expected to carry the prelims.

The positioning of the Alessio vs. Roller matchup on the night's card was not revealed.

Another tough fight for Alessio. Definitely rooting for him in this one but not an easy fight for him at all.

Ya thats what I was thinking, a pink-slip fight...really hope Alessio can pull it off for his first win in the UFC, he's been around such a long time and really needs it and deserves it
