Vinny Magalhaes will make his return to the UFC this September, as he takes on Igor Pokrajac at UFC 152. The card goes down September 22 from Toronto's Air Canada Centre.
Joe Ferraro, a reporter for Sportsnet Canada, first sent out word of the planned fight. Magalhaes signed his contract to return to the UFC recently after leaving M-1 Global due to issues with management.
Back during The Ultimate Fighter 8, Magalhaes (9-5) placed second to Ryan Bader. He went 0-2 inside the Octagon, but has since posted a 7-1 record in other promotions, including the M-1 Global light heavyweight title.
Pokrajc (25-8) has gone 4-3 in his UFC career, but is on a three-fight win streak that includes a pair of knockout victories.
