Three More UFC Veterans Sign With Shark Fights

The Shark Fight Promotion has added even more notable fighters to its Sept. 11 Shark Fights 13 card in Amarillo, Texas.

Zuffa veterans Pete Spratt, Douglas Evans, Brock Larson, Marcus Hicks and Karen Darabedyan, Bellator heavyweight Dave "Pee Wee" Herman, Strikeforce and Bellator veteran Aaron Rosa and Sengoku featherweight Ronnie Mann have signed on to compete on the undercard.

Previously announced for the main card were Keith Jardine vs. Trevor Prangley, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou vs. Houston Alexander, Joey Villasenor vs. Drew McFedries and Paul Daley vs. an opponent to be announced.

Brock Larson (28-4) was a title contender in the WEC and was transferred over to the UFC last year, fighting a total of four times in the same year. After being released for back-to-back losses, Larson has stayed close to home, winning twice in his own promotion, the Cage Fighting Xtreme group in Minnesota.

Alaska's Douglas Evans (10-6) joined the UFC in 2007 when he was signed to face Roger Huerta on the TUF 5 Finale card on Spike TV. Evans lost the Huerta fight by TKO as well as his next fight to Mark Bocek by unanimous decision leading to his UFC departure. Evans received another shot through the ShoXC, but suffered his third straight loss, this time to Bao Quach. Back on the smaller shows, he's amassed a 5-3 record since the ShoXC fight.

Pete Spratt (21-17) is very hit-or-miss, but can be counted on for exciting finishes. He's coming off a TKO victory over Luigi Fioravanti at MFC 25 in May.

Another interesting fight -- if it happens -- features heavyweight prospect Dave Herman, who turned down Bellator's offer to fight former UFC champion Ricco Rodriguez due to a legal dispute. Both sides are claiming breach of contract and are expected to duke it out in court early 2011.
