Posted on by Erik Fontanez

Screen Shot 2014-05-13 at 8.18.31 PMA heavyweight fight between Soa Palelei and Jared Rosholt has been added to UFC Fight Night 43, a UFC official told MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday evening.

The company later announced the Palelei-Rosholt affair, which takes place in Auckland, New Zealand on June 28.

Palelei (21-3) is getting right back into the mix of things, coming off a win over Ruan Potts at UFC Fight Night 40 last weekend. The Australian fighter is in his second tenure in the UFC, going 3-0 in his recent run in the Octagon.

Rosholt (10-1) is on a run of his own in the UFC, winning his first two fights in the organization. The 27-year-old heavyweight scored decision victories over Daniel Omielanczuk last month and Walt Harris in November of 2013.

UFC Fight Night 43 is headlined by a five-round fight between James Te Huna and Nate Marquardt.
