Vinny Magalhaes (9-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) appears to have an opponent for his UFC return.

Fresh off the news "The Ultimate Fighter 8" runner-up and M-1 champion has re-signed with the promotion, he's now slated to fight fellow light heavyweight Igor Pokrajac (25-8 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at UFC 152.

Sportsnet's Canadian reporter Joe Ferraro first reported the matchup.

UFC 152 takes place Sept. 22 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Good match up. Pokrajac is a tough draw for someone 0-2 in the UFC, but if Vinny can win, he proves that he was a good acquisition, in my opinion.

This fight is a toss up in my opinion.

Vinny needs to get this win or I can see the UFC walking him out as fast as they did last time.

Kind if a striker vs Grappler match, Igor is going to want to look for the KO while if Vinny can get it to the mat he's got a good shot there. I like Igors chances however.

Igor is the exact right type of opponent. He's not particularly likely to get a murderous stoppage, but he's good enough to show whether Vinny is the real deal these days.
