A light heavyweight bout has been added to UFC: Nottingham with Brazilian slugger Fabio Maldonado facing Swede Jorgen Kruth.

Kruth was one of the Swedish born fighters originally scheduled to fight on the UFC on Fuel TV 2 card that landed in the country in April, but he suffered an injury that forced him off the card.

The former Muay Thai and kickboxing champion will now face Maldonado in a bout between two very heavy hitters.

I agree. Maldonado had an awesome fight with Igor Pokrajac in his last outing. All 3 judges had Pokrajac winning that fight but I thought Maldonado was going to get the decision in his favor. Tough break.

I haven't seen Kruth fight, but if he utilizes his Muay Thai background, he may also get the nod...unless Fabio has decided just eating knees to the face isn't a great strategy. Fabio, similar to Nick Diaz, has fantastic boxing, but both are always so complacent to trade and eat shots from their opponents.

Fabio is always super entertaining to watch, was hoping for Kruth vs Diabate but this will just as good. Kruth better have a strong midsection or he is getting dropped!
