On Monday, we reported that Vinny Magalhaes is finally making his return to the UFC. Magalhaes earned a place in The Ultimate Fighter 8 finals against Ryan Bader who won by 1st Round TKO. Vinny was released from the UFC after his next fight where he dropped a decision to Eliot Marshall at UFC 97. Since then, he has gone 7-1 in his last eight fights with a 5-fight win streak and the M-1 Light Heavyweight title. Now, along with a newly signed UFC contract, Vinny also has his first opponent.

Sportsnet's Joe Ferraro announced today via Twitter:

Igor Pokrajac is riding high on a 3-fight win streak since his loss to Stephan Bonnar at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale. His latest win came against Fabio Maldonado at UFC On Fuel 3 in a narrow decision that he definitely didn't escape unscathed. He will meet Vinny at UFC 152 in Air Canada Center in Toronto, Canada.
