The UFC added a light heavyweight bout today to their December 10th card in Toronto, which will serve as UFC 140. The match-up, which is sure to give the team that designs the on-screen graphics a fit, will feature yet another Canadian in Krzysztof Soszynski, taking on Igor Pokrajac:

An explosive light heavyweight showdown has been verbally agreed to for December 10 in Toronto as Igor "The Duke" Pokrajac takes on Krzysztof "The Polish Experiment" Soszynski.

This bout was originally slated for UFC 131 in Vancouver back in June, but Pokrajac pulled out with an injury, and Mike Massenzio stepped in, only to lose a decision to Soszynski. Both men will be coming off fairly long layoffs, as Pokrajac hasn't fought since March, and Sosznyski suffered an injury of his own after the Massenzio fight, leaving him unable to train for quite some time.
