Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury at UFC 139 in San Jose, California on Nov. 19th

“Ultimate Fighter” season 1 runner-up, Stephan Bonnar and season eight alum, Kyle Kingsbury will meet in a light heavyweight bout at UFC 139 in San Jose, California on November 19th, 2011. The Las Vegas based promotion made the announcement earlier today via UFC.com meaning both men have likely signed official bout agreements.

Bonnar has been out so far this year due to injuries and will be looking to extend his winning streak to three after picking up a TKO victory over Krzysztof Soszynski and a decision win over Igor Pokrajac. There had been rumours that he might face Josh Koscheck who he has had a public war of words with as of late.

Kingsbury will be going for his fifth straight UFC victory after suffering a unanimous decision loss to Tom Lawlor on the season eight finale. He has since posted wins over Razak Al-Hassan, Jarred Hamman, Ricardo Romero and Fabio Maldonado, the last of which also earned him the “Fight of the Night”.
