Nedkov vs. Maldonado added to UFC 142

A light heavyweight tilt between Stanislav Nedkov and Fabio Maldonado is official for UFC 142 in Brazil in 2012.

UFC officials confirmed the match up earlier today.

Undefeated throughout his 12-fight career, Nedkov recently debuted in the UFC opposite power-puncher Luiz Cane. The Bulgarian stifled the Brazilian with strikes in the opening frame to walk away with the technical knockout victory. Prior to the victory, Nedkov earned nine stoppages in 11 contests.

Unlike his upcoming opponent, Maldonado has tasted the bitterness of defeat. In his last contest, the Brazilian was defeated by Kyle Kingsbury via unanimous decision at “The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale.” The loss snapped an impressive 11-fight winning streak that went back to December of 2007.

UFC 142 is set for Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on January 14 and features a main event between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and top contender Chad Mendes. The event will broadcast live on Pay-Per-View.
