UFC Krzysztof Soszynski

On Thursday afternoon, a light heavyweight clash between Krzysztof Soszynski (Pictured) and Igor Pokrajac was added to the UFC 140 roster. The event takes place December 10th inside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.

The 205-pounders were initially scheduled to meet at UFC 131. However, Pokrajac suffered an injury and was replaced by Mike Massenzio. Soszynski went on to post a unanimous decision victory that evening.

Pokrajac was last seen defeating Todd Brown at “UFC on Versus 3” this past March. The Croatian has won two of his last three scraps.
