MMAjunkie.com reported the match up after speaking to one of the competitors.
Irvin, whose dive into the middleweight division at “UFC on Versus 1” against Alessio Sakara was, well, a dive, is making the move back to the light heavyweight class where his weight cut should not leave him with a malnourished look at the weigh-ins in August. Irvin looked awful the day prior to the fight and lost a striking match with Sakara after a knuckle to his eye resulted in a technical knockout loss.
Welcoming Irvin back to the 205-pound division is Pokrajic, who has struggled thus far in his young UFC career, is looking for his first win with the promotion after dropping back-to-back losses to Vladimir Matyushenko by decision and James Te-Huna via technical knockout. At 0-2 with the promotion, this fight is certainly a must-win situation for the Croatian.
The UFC”s second trip to the Versus network is set for August 1 live from Salt Lake City, Utah. The event features a main event between the fast-rising light heavyweight Jon Jones and the veteran Vladimir Matyushenko. As Heavy.com first reported, a lightweight match up between Joe Stevenson and Takanori Gomi has also been scheduled for the card.
