The Italian sensation will be pushing the pace on January 19th since the pressure is all on him. According to the American Top Team website, Sakara has recently joined the ATT in order to shape his game up a bit. ATT has been very well known to bring about very successful fighters such as Din Thomas, Denis Kang, Thiago Alves and many more. Many of his fans will hope to see Legionarius back in win-mode after struggling his past few fights. The brown belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter will be taking on the King of the Cage veteran James Lee in the UFC 80 preliminary fight card in 2 weeks from tomorrow.
Alessio “Legionarius” Sakara (11-6-0) hasn’t been as successful as he would like to be in the UFC. With only 2 wins in 6 bouts, including a “no contest” decision at UFC 55-Fury (kicked in the groin by Ron Faircloth), he will look to welcome the UFC newcomer James Lee with a defeat at UFC 80-Rapid Fire.
