The main card for the Octagon’s fourth foray on FOX has been finalized. “UFC on FOX: Shogun vs. Vera” takes place Aug. 4 and features a light heavyweight shootout between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (Pictured) and Brandon Vera.
Speaking of 205-pounders, Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader will serve as the night’s co-main attraction. A heavyweight battle with Travis Browne and Ben Rothwell gets the lineup’s third billing, while a lightweight affair between Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner rounds out the prime-time lineup.
