Officials announced that Steve Bosse has been signed to a contract with the UFC and will make his Octagon debut at UFC 186 against Fabio Maldonado.
While Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and his legal team continue to fight to try and keep him on the April 25 card from the Bell Centre, the promotion decided to make the change.
Bosse has won 10 of his 11 pro fights after a professional hockey career ended. He turned pro in 2007 and has defeated the likes of Wes Sims, Marvin Eastman and Houston Alexander.
