The Ultimate Fighter season one alumni Stephan Bonnar is currently looking to establish some momentum after finally getting back in the win column with an impressive TKO win over Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 116 this past June. “The American Psycho” will be taking on “Cro Cop” protege Igor Pokrajac at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale this December 4th. Bonnar spoke with the NWI Times about Pokrajac as an opponent and how he expects the fight to go.
“He always seems to go for takedowns in his fights, so I’m sure he’ll try that,” Bonnar said. “I’ve actually been scoring takedowns lately in my fights, too. So I’m sure you’ll see all kinds of action in this fight.”
One part of the legendary Griffin-Bonnar finale bout from TUF 1, “The American Psycho” is no stranger to engaging in a knock down, drag out mixed martial arts fight. He expects that his fight against Pokrajac will also encompass all aspects of MMA and he plans to bring it as hard as he always does.
“I’ve been working everything as usual,” said Bonnar. “I’m becoming more and more comfortable transitioning through all aspects of the fight — I’m mixing it up well. It’s good to keep guys guessing. I see this fight going all over. I definitely will be slugging it out, and I’m also confident I can score takedowns on him, as well.”
The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale goes down this Saturday at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada and, in addition to feature the lightweight fighters from this season, will also showcase a bout between middleweights Demian Maia and Kendall Grove.
