The UFC has confirmed a light-heavyweight fight for the UFC Nottingham card on September 29.
Swedish kickboxer Jorgen Kruth will take on Brazilian boxer Fabio Maldonado in what has the potential to be a Fight of the Year candidate.
Kruth has held the World Muay Thai Council super-heavyweight title twice and is a legend in the world of Scandinavian fight sports, having competed regularly on the official K-1 circuit in Europe and Japan.
Maldonado has a professional boxing record of 22-0 with 21 of those wins coming by way of stoppage inside the distance.
In MMA he is 18-5 and he is 1-2 in the UFC. However his last fight - against Igor Pokrajac on May 15 - resulted in a decision loss that felt by most observers to be undeserved. Even UFC president Dana White called the decision â€śa robberyâ€ť on Twitter.
UFC Nottingham takes place in the Midlands city of Nottingham, UK on Saturday September 29 at the Capital FM arena. Tickets are on sale now.
