Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury on Tap for UFC 139

via cdn3.sbnation.com

For those of you that were thought there was some hope that Josh Koscheck might face Stephan Bonnar at middleweight, well your hopes have been dashed. Bonnar will face Kyle Kingsbury at UFC 139 on November 19th in San Jose, CA. UFC.com has it:

"Verbal agreements are in for a fight that promises non-stop action as Kyle Kingsbury will take on the ‘American Psycho’ Stephan Bonnar at UFC 139," said UFC president Dana White today.

Both light-heavyweight sluggers are coming off decision wins earned in three-rounds wars -- Bonnar against Igor Pokrajac at the TUF 12 Finale in December and Kingsbury over Fabio Maldonado at the TUF 13 Finale in June.

This will be Bonnar's 14th fight in the UFC, and Kingsbury's 6th. Both are veterans of the Ultimate Fighter, with Bonnar making the finals in Season One while Kingsbury lost to both Ryan Bader and Krzysztof Soszynski on TUF 8. He also lost at the TUF 8 Finale to Tom Lawlor, but has completely turned things around with four straight wins since then.

Stephan "The American Psycho" Bonnar (13-7)
Win Igor Pokrajac - Decision (Unanimous) TUF 12 Finale
Win Krzysztof Soszynski - TKO (Punches) UFC 116
Loss Krzysztof Soszynski - TKO (Doctor Stoppage) UFC 110

Kyle "Kingsbu" Kingsbury (11-2)

Win Ricardo Romero - TKO (Knee to the Body) UFC 126
Win Jared Hamman - Decision (Unanimous) UFN 22
