By FCF Staff
It didn’t take the UFC long to book Soa Palelei another bout, following his knockout win last weekend, as “The Hulk” will battle Jared Rosholt on June 28th.
The heavyweight scrap will be part of UFC Fight Night 43, which will be hosted by Auckland, New Zealand’s Vector Arena. The fight was reported first by the New Zealand Herald, and was subsequently confirmed by the UFC.
Palelei (21-3) knocked out Ruan Potts with ground-and-pound strikes at UFC FN 40 on Saturday, to extend his winning streak to 11. The Australian fighter has gone 3-1 in the UFC to date.
Rosholt (10-1) is also coming off a recent win, as the American decisioned Daniel Omielanczuk at UFC FN 39 in April. Rosholt is riding a six fight win streak, which includes two victories in the UFC.
UFC FN 43 will feature a middleweight bout between James Te Huna and Nate Marquardt in the main event.
