Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Stephan Bonnar to Return Against Karlos Vemola at ‘UFC on Versus 5′ in August

(The “American Wacko” t-shirt, from TrashTalkinKids. Still waiting on my “Snot Jorgensen” tee, guys.)

Riding high on a two-fight win streak against Krzysztof Soszynski and Igor Pokrajac, Stephan Bonnar will likely take on yet another dude with a weird European name in his next appearance. Multiple sources reported today that the American Psycho will face aggressive Czech prospect Karlos “The Terminator” Vemola at UFC on Versus 5, August 14th in Milwaukee.

Vemola (8-1, all wins by first-round stoppage) made his name competing in England as a heavyweight, Donkey Kong-ing most of his terrified opponents in under two minutes. He suffered his first defeat in his Octagon debut at UFC 116, getting slept on by Jon Madsen for three rounds. Wisely, the 6-foot fireplug immediately dropped to light-heavyweight, and beat the living crap out of Seth Petruzelli, picking up a Knockout of the Night bonus in the process. Vemola was slated to return against Luis Cane at UFC 128, but had to withdraw due to a mouth infection.

Killer matchup, if you ask me. Battle-tested vet vs. young juggernaut — who ya got?

Bonnar is one of my favorite fighters! This one's going to be a war!

Vemola's last fight was nearly stopped during the stare down. The ref thought his eye was rolling to the back of his head.

Boner's career highlight is winning against Jardine.
I reckon he'll get knocked the fuck out.

lol @ $40 tshirts. I really want to know how many of those they sell.

Vemola has never faced anyone good. Not even anyone as good as Bonnar. Should be a cakewalk.

Yeah, I want to see Stephan use his Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu!

@ cymatic - I'm not sure how wild your speculation is. If you take the specific time out of it, I'd say that's about even money the fight goes down just like that.

**Unnecessarily Specific & Wildly Speculative Prediction Alert**

Round 1 - Vemola smashing Bonnar's face
Round 2 - Vemola starts to gas Bonnar gains ground
Round 3 - Vemola completely gasses, Bonnar wins by submission with 0:42 remaining in the fight

Mouth infection?!

vemola tossed petzutrelli around like a ragdoll i want to see what happens if he gets swept or bonnar stuffs a takedown and takes it into the 2nd and 3rd rounds

Bah! Should have booked Machida Vs. Bonnar II for UFC Rio.

This should be a brutal fight. Vemola's a beast but so long as Bonnar can survive the first and avoid being on the bottom I think he can steal a W if he plays it smart.
