MMAFightline.com has confirmed through sources close to Matt Hamill that he has been offered and accepted a match up with Stephan Bonner to take place at UFC Fight Night on April 2nd. Stephan Bonnar has also confirmed the fight on his personal website.
This fight will be a true test for Bonners ground skills, as Hamill is a a three-time NCAA Division III National Wrestling Champion and should have no problem taking this fight to the ground.
Hamill must show that he is not just a wrestler and try for submissions on the ground. In his most recent loss to Michael Bisping, Hamill had no problem taking down Bisping, but showed virtually no skills to pass guard and fight for submissions.
