Victor Valimaki will face Steve Bossé on August 17 in Montreal, Quebec. The two will square off in the main event of Challenge MMA 2.

Bossé (10-1) recently won his eighth fight in a row at the inaugural Challenge MMA event. In that bout, Bossé defeated Caleb Grummet by stopping him with a nasty cut. “The Boss” has defeated opponents such as Houston Alexander and Marvin Eastman and has even turned down UFC offers in an impressive career. He will be looking to add another win over a former UFCer with a win over Valimaki.

Valimaki (17-8) is a two time UFCer who last fought over a year ago. In that fight, Valimaki finished the tough Tim Chemelli. The Edmonton fighter had other scheduled fights but encountered health issues and took some time off from the sport. Valimaki has a busy summer schedule in 2013. Prior to fighting Steve Bossé, he will take on Dwayne Lewis on July 5th in Edmonton at AFC 19.  With a renewed focus on nutrition and training, could resurrect his career with two huge summer wins.

Top MMA News has also learned that Aiemann Zahabi (1-0) will be on the August 17th event. No opponent has been named at this time.

    Top MMA News needs to get ahold of Valimaki and interview him, I would love to know what changes he has made and what he is doing to make his return to high level MMA.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 8 Thumb down 4

    New management. New team. New dietician. New S&C coach. New outlook. Vic’s doing everything right to ensure his run at getting back to the UFC is a successful one.

    He will join Tristar after the Bosse fight because of the obvious conflict. Until then Vic will probably head back to
    Albuquerque to Jackson’s MMA. Should be one more marquee September Canadian match-up announced for Vic before the month is out.

    Valimaki is going to fight someone new every other week but it never happens. What happened to the Dwayne Lewis and Razak Al Hassan fights he was supposed to have? I predict Valimaki mysteriously gets injured before this fight AGAIN.
