Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Ednaldo Oliveira added to UFC on FX 6Posted on September 17, 2012, 12:41 AM by Mike Searson
According to an article on Tatame.com, Krzysztof Soszynski (26-12-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will face Ednaldo Oliveira (13-1-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC on FX 6 in December in Australia. This will be Soszynski's first fight since last December's UFC 140, where he was knocked out in 35 seconds by Igor Pokrajac.
"The Polish Experiment" was considering retirement, but told MMAjunkie.com that he has one fight left in him: "I don't want to go out the way I did. I definitely want to fight one more time. But it's not up to me; it's up to my body. If my body lets me, I'll be in that octagon once again, smiling across the octagon from my opponent, shaking hands and going to war. But until I talk to my doctor and get checked out, I won't know what's going on."
Oliveira made his UFC debut last January at UFC 142 in his native Brazil where he fought Gabriel Gonzaga in a Heavyweight bout and lost in the first round via rear-naked choke. Of his 13 career wins Oliveira has eight of those by knockout.
UFC on FX 6 will feature a main event Middleweight bout between Hector Lombard and Rousimar Palhares, the two finals of "The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. U.K." and the coaches' bout for that series between Ross Pearson and George Sotiropoulos.
