Light heavyweights collide at 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.
