Alessio Sakara - UFN 17 settembre 2008
"Recent American Top Team addition Alessio Sakara did much to rejuvenate his standing in the UFC’s middleweight division Wednesday at the Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb. He scored a highlight-worthy knockout of Octagon newcomer Joe Vedepo to cap off a UFC Fight Night preliminary card filled with explosive finishes.
Sakara, a native of Rome, Italy, has been criticized for his inconsistency and his chin, as the slugger has been stopped by punches in three of his eight previous UFC bouts. Bucking the trend with an aggressive game plan and a torrent of strikes, Sakara (13-7, 1 NC) set the pace early with two head kicks that narrowly missed their target. Following a failed shot from Vedepo (7-2), Sakara seized the much-needed win by slamming a right-legged head kick into the face of the Team Extreme brawler.
Referee Yves Lavigne watched closely as a heavy punch rained down on the fallen Vedepo, which prompted the third man in the cage to call an end to the contest at just 1:27 of the first. "
Alla faccia di chi ti vuole male... GRANDE ALESSIO!
