Top EliteXC middleweight contender Joey Villasenor (26-6) will return to action for the organization on Sept. 20, possibly in front of a hometown audience.

On Saturday MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed the upcoming EliteXC bout with Villasenor.

"It sounds like it's going to be in my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico," Villasenor said. "We’re just waiting on confirmation of who it's going to be (against)."

Villasenor said EliteXC officials have shared a few names as possible opponents -- including Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos -- but that the organization appears determined to put together a rematch with Murilo "Ninja" Rua (16-8-1).

Yeah, this is a rematch I look forward to seeing. Both guys looked impressive in their last fight, and a rematch could be classic. I don't think that the fight will go like the last one.

Joey seems to be ready for just about anyone in his weight division on EliteXC, and in his home town w/ Greg"Yoda" Jackson behind him its a sure win over "Cyborg" or even the rematch against "Ninja". To be honest the kids on fire and in his prime.
