Brazilian heavyweight, Junior dos Santos, will be making his return to the octagon this August at either UFC 101 or 102.
The Brazilian website, Tatame.com, recently spoke with dos Santos who went on to say that his opponent would be Justin McCully.
Dos Santos made a surprising entrance into the UFC when he knocked out top ten heavyweight and fellow Brazilian, Fabricio Werdum, at UFC 90in October of last year. He needed all of 81 seconds to finish the job, and with that, sent Werdum packing his bags. His most recent fight came against Stefan Struve at UFC 95 in February. This time he only needed 54 seconds to dispatch of the tall, lanky German.
McCully has not been seen since defeating Eddie Sanchez at the UFC’s “Fight For The Troops” special back in December. The Team Punishment fighter is 2-1 throughout his UFC career, also defeating Antoni Hardonk and losing to Gabriel Gonzaga.
UFC 101 is scheduled for August 8th and will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and UFC 102 will be held in Portland, Oregon on August 29.
