After suffering a vicious 35-second knockout courtesy of a salvo of punches from Igor Pokrajac at UFC 140 last December, Ultimate Fighter 8 veteran Krysztof Soszynski quietly hung up the gloves up and decided to call it a career. It would seem “the Polish Experiment” has had a change of heart and is now set to return to the octagon as he meets Ednaldo Oliveira at UFC on FX 6 on December 15 in Australia (Dec 14 stateside due to time zones).
Soszynski (26-12-1) is 6-3 in the UFC, with victories over the likes of Brian Stann, Stephan Bonnar, and Mike Massenzio. Prior to the loss to Pokrajac, the Team Quest product was on two-fight win-streak.
Oliveira (13-1-1, 1NC) will be making his light heavyweight debut after being submitting by Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 142 in January. The Brazilian known as “Lula Musoco” was undefeated in his MMA career prior to the loss, earning his place as one of the top heavyweights in the Brazil before losing to “Napao”.
