Recently signed heavyweight Soa Palelei appears to have his second UFC fight lined up, as Fight News Australia is reporting he will meet Stipe Miocic in June at UFC 161. The card is expected to take place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Palelei (18-3) lost his previous bout inside the Octagon to Eddie Sanchez several years ago. Since that time, he has posted a 10-1 mark, and owns 14 career first round submissions.
Miocic (9-1) has won three of four UFC bouts, but was defeated for the first time in his career by Stefan Struve last year.
