Perth based heavyweight Soa Palelei looks set to return to the cage against 32 year-old Daniel Omielanczuk at the upcoming UFC event in Sydney on November 8.
News of the match-up was first revealed on MMARocks.pl last month with sources close to the bout advising Fight News Australia earlier today that they also expect the fight to take place.

Arlene Blencowe (pictured right) put away women's featherweight champion Faith Van Duin (pictured left) in the third round of the Storm Damage 5 main event on Saturday night, in what turned out to be a non title fight due to Blencowe missing weight.
The Aussie boxing standout proved too good on the feet for a resilient Van Duin, with the end coming for the Kiwi from a knee to the body. The fight was contested at a catch-weight of 67.4kg.
Gold Coast based fighter Tim Moore was pushed all the way but ultimately got the unanimous decision victory over Ryan Lambert in the main event of Carnage In The Cage 3 last night. The two were promoted to main event status after previous headliner Taela Kelly was hospitalised during his weight cut, and subsequently cancelled his bout against Shane Wundenberg.
The event was held at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre in Queensland's north.
The UFC will return to Sydney on November 8. UFC president Dana White confirmed the date earlier today at the UFC 177 pre-fight scrum.
November 8 had been rumored to be the promotion's return date for Sydney, and as Fight News Australia revealed earlier today, it's likely Anthony Perosh (14-8) will face Brazilian Guto Inocente (6-3) at the event.
