Long-time UFC light-heavyweight competitor Matt Hamill has reversed his decision to retire from the sport and will return to action at UFC 152 on September 22nd.
The 35 year-old announced his retirement a year ago after back-to-back losses to Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Alexander Gustafsson, stating that injuries over the years had taken their toll, but it seems that he wasn’t quite ready to hang up his gloves for good after all.
He’ll now make his return against Roger Hollett, a newcomer to the UFC who brings a 13-3 record to the Octagon and had won a place in Bellator’s seventh season light-heavyweight tournament before opting to sign for the sport’s biggest promotion instead.
UFC 152 will be headlined by a flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez while two other major fights scheduled for the main card include Michael Bisping Vs Brian Stann and BJ Penn Vs Rory MacDonald.
It’s not clear yet if Hamill Vs Hollett will feature on the pay-per-view portion of the Canadian card.
