Bonnar vs. Vemola Set for UFC on Versus 5


Stephan Bonnar has traveled a rocky road through the UFC since emerging from the cast of the inaugural season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” but he will look to add to a recent two-fight streak when he faces Karlos Vemola at UFC on Versus 5 in August.

Bonnar tweeted the fight on his TrashTalkinKids twitter account, while ESPN’s Jon Anik tweeted the event.

Bonnar (13-7) was teetering on the brink following a three-fight skid in 2009-2010, but finally bounced back with a win over Krzysztof Soszynski in July of last year. He added Igor Pokrajac to the hit list in December. It’s been a long layoff, but he’ll look to build on his recent successes against the Czech fighter.

Vemola (8-1) is making the second start of his light heavyweight career against Bonnar. He amassed a 7-1 record as a heavyweight, but dropped down to 205 pounds after suffering a loss to Jon Madsen at UFC 116. The bout with Bonnar will Vemola’s first bout since November 2010.

UFC on Versus 5 has not been officially announced yet, but is expected to take place at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisc. Other rumored bouts include Amir Sadollah vs. Duane “Bang” Ludwig and Cole Miller vs. T.J. O’Brien.
Holy shit this is gonna be a sick fight!

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

oh man.... We've been waiting quite awhile to see this young man fight again.... and what a match-up we have now.

I hope Bonnar finds a way to win and look good, but this guy doesn't seem terribly easy to handle.

Will Bonnar be able to contain Vemola for the first few minutes of the fight?
Will Bonnar's toughness cause Vemola to tire and fold?
Will Vemola crush everyone based on that one awesome performance I saw that one time?

Lots of answers to be found out, glad we have a date!

If we get the same Vemola that was running through Heavyweights in the CFC, Bonnar is gonna get crushed. Vemola is a beast.

Vemola is ONE WILD MAN! He seems to have pretty solid cardio which makes his style of fight all the more entertaining. POUND AWAY!!!

Interesting fight. I've only seen Vemola's fight with Madsen. I'll have to watch more of his fights.

Dont count Bonnar out , the guy is actually fighting to win now rather than to just please the crowd.

You guys are underestimating Bonnar. It's a bit of a trap fight for him, but he is better than Vemola. I actually see him losing in a way similar to how he lost to Madsen.
