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.

love this matchup, very tough to call. their skillsets are close but stephan is on the downswing, while KS has looked good lately so im eager to see how this one plays out.

I think it'll go the distance with Soszyski coming out on top. Possibly a split decision, even?

Regardless, neither guy is going to get knocked out (or submitted, for that matter).

Bonnar is going to get destroyed. he hasn't been the same since the drugs testing.

I disagree. It's the same Stephan Bonnar we've always seen. Mid-card guy that'll have good fights with other mid-card guys, a good chin and the skillset that'll rack up a quality win every now and then but will never beat the top tier guys in his division.

People like to build Bonnar up to be something he's never been...a superstar. What you see is what you get with the guy, in my opinion.

Never been a fan of Bonnar.
Hope he gets plowed.
