Last I heard of him was when he lost to Rizzo but does anyone know if he's coming back to the UFC or heard anything like that? I used to like watching him fight and I think he could make some good matchups in the new heavyweight division.

In the bonus features of the UFC 65 DVD he's talking to Josh Barnett and he talks about retiring. I think Monson might have 1 or 2 fights left in him or he might be done already.

Damn. I wanted to see him fight some of the new heavyweights like Cro Cop or Nogueira. I don't think he'd win but it could have potential to be an entertaining fight.

I doubt we see him in the UFC again.

Maybe elite XC,but I just don't see the UFC taking him again.

He seems to be a perfect fit for one of the less-well-established leagues - a pretty big name, a good fighter with decent credibility. That's not to say he couldn't thrive in the UFC, I just think at 36 years old, he may be happy being dominant somewhere else. He seems to take fights all over the place.

He's busy selling illegal steroids, and committing acts of anarchy all around the nation.
