The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Friday morning announced a light heavyweight addition to its debut Down Under. Stephan Bonnar will face Krzysztof Soszynski on Feb. 21 at the Acer Arena in Sydney.
MMAWeekly.com first reported the bout’s likelihood in early November.
Bonnar (11-6) last appeared at UFC 100 in July, where he lost by unanimous decision to former heavyweight champion Mark Coleman in the promotion’s blockbuster summer event. It was his second consecutive loss on points after a setback to Jon Jones at UFC 94.
Since emerging from the inaugural season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Bonnar has gone 5-5 in the Octagon.
Soszynski (18-9-1) last appeared at UFC 102 in August where he lost a unanimous decision to Brandon Vera. It was his first setback in four appearances since emerging last December from the eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
