Four fight UFC veteran James Te Huna has his next fight booked as he will face Brandon Vera at UFC on Fuel 4.

Te Huna made the announcement via his Twitter account on Thursday. The fight was first reported by MMAWeekly.com content partner FightBulletin.net

“I’m fighting Brandon Vera, UFC on Fuel 4,” wrote Te Huna.

While UFC on Fuel 4 has not been official announced, Fuel TV Executive Vice President and General Manager George Greenberg stated earlier this week that he expected that show to take place in July, although final plans have yet to be decided.

No date or venue has been rumored as of yet either for the fourth live card on Fuel TV.

James Te Huna will get back in action on a two fight win streak, and going 3-1 thus far in his UFC career. His lone loss is to top ten light heavyweight prospect Alexander Gustafsson, and outside of that Te Huna has been flawless finishing every other fight inside of the 15-minute time limit.

Facing Te Huna at UFC on Fuel 4 will be former heavyweight and now light heavyweight prospect Brandon Vera.

Vera was actually released from the UFC following a loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 125 in Jan 2011, but after Silva was suspended due to a falsified drug test result, the UFC gave him another shot. Vera made the most of it by picking up a win over Eliot Marshall, and now hopes to build on that with his fight against Te Huna.

The two light heavyweights are the first bout announced for the UFC on Fuel 4 card. MMAWeekly.com will have more information on the show when it becomes available.
