Light heavyweights collide at UFC 139

A 205 lb. match up between Stephan Bonnar and Kyle Kingsbury is official for UFC 139.

The promotion announced the bout earlier today.

A longtime fan favorite and runner-up from season one of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Bonnar has experienced a career resurgence after snapping a three-fight losing streak against Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 116, winning via technical knockout. He followed that up with a unanimous decision win against Igor Pokrajic last December.

Meanwhile, Kingsbury is on a nice winning streak of his own, winning four straight inside the Octagon. He last fought this past June at “The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale,” defeating Fabio Maldonado via unanimous decision.

UFC 139 is set for November 19 in San Jose, California. A heavyweight title fight between champion Cain Velasquez and top contender Junior dos Santos will serve as the evening’s main event.
