James “The Sandman” Irvin is set to make his octagon return at UFC Live: Vera Vs Jones on March 21 against Alessio Sakara. Irvins record stands 14-5, with his latest loss coming from the hands of Anderson “The Spider” Silva. When asked what he thought about a possible rematch with “The Spider” he had this to say;
“Honestly, I don’t think I would ever deserve a rematch with him unless I won ten fights in a row by vicious knockout! He might even be retired by then. I don’t want a rematch with Anderson Silva to be honest.”
During Irvin’s fight with Silva, Silva KO’d Irvin in the first round and now he will try to bounce back from that loss by beating the heavy handed Alessio Sakara, who is currently on a 3-fight winning streak inside The Octagon.
