Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight hurter Fabio Maldonado is tired of getting screwed over by the judges. So perhaps that's a sign it's time to start finishing fights?

Expect that to be his number one priority when he throws hands opposite promotion newcomer Jorgen Kruth at the UFC on FUEL TV 5 event planned for the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England on Sept. 29, 2012.

The UFC announced the 205-pound match-up earlier today.

Maldonado (18-5) insists he got screwed out of a decision win against Igor Pokrajac on the main card of UFC on FUEL TV 3 earlier this year at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.

The two lethal light heavyweights slugged it out across three rounds in a thrilling back-and-forth affair that ultimately went in favor of "The Duke," which marked the second time the Brazilian boxer was viewed unfavorably by the judges, as he also dropped a close three-rounder to Kyle Kingsbury nearly a year ago.

Don't put it in the hands of ... well, you know the rest.

Kruth (5-0) was originally booked to make his Octagon debut on the UFC on FUEL TV 2 fight card in his native Sweden; however, an untimely injury shelved him for the first half of the year and left the undefeated Muay Thai striker with no place to ply his trade.

Until now.

UFC on FUEL TV 5 will be headlined by a heavyweight battle pitting Stefan Struve vs. Stipe Miocic. In addition, bantamweight brawler Brad Pickett will take on Yves Jabouin while The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15: "Live" contestant Andy Ogle goes to war against fellow featherweight and TUF veteran Akira Corassani.
