Magalhaes, Pokrajac meet in Sept.
Sportsnet’s Joe Ferraro reported the match up on Twitter last evening.
Earlier this week, reports circulated that Magalhaes, after a lengthy waiting period, had signed with the UFC. The submission ace has been out of action for some time, looking to walk away from M-1 Global after he and the promotion had a major fallout.
He last fought in October of 2011, defending his M-1 Global light heavyweight title. The victory pushed his professional record to 9-5.
Meanwhile, Pokrajac finds himself on a three-fight winning streak since his loss to Stephan Bonnar back in December of 2010. He last competed at “UFC on FUEL TV 3,” earning a unanimous decision victory over Fabio Maldonado.
UFC 152 is set for September 22 in Toronto. The card will be headlined by a flyweight title fight between contenders Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson.
