A one-year retirement was just about enough for light heavyweight Matt "The Hammer" Hamill, who has opted to resume his fighting career and will compete next at UFC 152 in Toronto on Sept. 22.

Hamill will meet UFC newcomer Roger Hollett. UFC president Dana White confirmed the move and said the fighters have verbally agreed to fight each other.

Dude, lay off him. That wasn't an insult. He has a deaf dog, he named it Hamill...I think thats tight. First of all he's kind enough to take in a deaf animal...most get put to sleep...he had to name it something so he named it after A very inspirational deaf man, Matt Hamill. Its like a tribute, not an insult.

Calm down.

...or explain to me why you think what he said is insulting?

A MMA fighter's retirement announcement is about as good as a politician's word. Worthless.

It is totally insulting and it is obvious there is no point telling you why it is. Also...most deaf animals get put to sleep? Not at all. I have actually never heard of a deaf animal being put to sleep for being deaf. Wow.

I think naming a pet after someone is a high order compliment, regardless of the reasons. You're going to be using that name a lot, so it's obvious the person you name them after is someone you like/respect.

As for Hamill's return -I'm pretty neutral on the whole thing, but 152 is looking like a great card.

Pretty sweet to see Hamill back, I thought he left early. He had decent potential in the sport and this seems like a good comeback match up.

Woah, how is naming a dog after a famous athlete insulting? Why would either of you just assume that calling his dog Hamill is a negative thing?

You're right.

Hamill returning is pretty sweet. It's even better that he's doing it in Toronto

Hollett is a nice pick up but I think Hamill gets the job done.

my uncle used to have a 3 legged dog he named Abbott, after Jim Abbott (MLB pitcher with one hand). no one, including the dog, ever found it to be insulting

Why is it insulting? Because he named his dog after one of his hero's? I named by dog after a famous actress, is it insulting to her?My friend names his dog after Michael Jordan...is it insulting to him?

Also most blind and deaf animals are often put to sleep. Most dogs in general are put to sleep. Every major city in the United States puts down hundreds of dogs every week. There is no room for them. Its sad. I donot support it. However it is a cruel fact. Whats even more cruel is that sick, or deformed animals are more often to be put to sleep because they are either considered "undoptable", or they ae not adopted because of their deformity.

In San Francisco, where I live, dogs get 3 days...3 freaking days from the time they are brought into the pound to the time they are put to sleep. Luckliy the SPCA will take in many of the animals they deem adoptable (and will hold them for years until they are), but those who are not adopted after 3 days that are deemed "harder to place into home" by the SPCA, such has blind or deaf animals, and are put to sleep.

Yes, a deaf animal isn't put automatically to sleep because they are deaf. But if they are not adopted within the week...

...and most familes would adopt a helathy dog over one that needs added attention and medical care.

This man takes care of a deaf animal...he is a good person for doing so. He named it Hamill, which I think is inspirational.

You sir need to back up your claim, or else I actually recommend you banned for blatantly insulting a man for no reason.

Is this off-topic...yes, but I can't stand idlely by while another man bullys somebody for doing a good deed...such is what is wrong with the world, do something good, and you are attcked for it.

War animal activists and war Matt Hamill in his fight back!

I named my dog Zeus, i haven't been struck by a lighting bolt yet, so if a greek god is coo with it why would a mere human find fault with it

I glad to see hamill back, I felt as if his retirement was forced; just seemed like he hit a wall in his training and just lost the desire for it. hopefully the time off was good and relight the fire

Roger Hollett has been trying to get in the UFC for years and I remember Dana being asked if he would sign Roger Hollett when he was undefeated or only had one loss and Dana said he never heard of him and wasn't on his radar. Honestly I think Hamill is going to run through him they just wanted another Canadian guy on the card.

I don't really need to add anything that hasn't been said. I will mention people don't want deaf dogs, and they are tough little buggers to train so most go to the pound, and no one picks them up there, so they just get put to sleep. Once you put in the effort, they can show you just as much love as a dog that can hear.

Thanks for sticking up for my in my absence guys. I think some people just need a little more sleep

By the way, we can call my dog all kinds of things - it's not like she can hear us

It's quarter to one out here in the UK and for some reason I thought that prophecy had written the not cool at all thing and I was thinking? That doesnt sound like prophecy at all, I'm a huge fan of prophecy, why'd he say that, that's not like him, then I saw the chill pill post by him and I was like

Why chill pill your own post

So I got up, had something to drink and was like that doesn't sound like prophecy at all

Then after some thinking and some shock and thinking I didn't really know who prophecy was anymore, some upset and reminicising of the old prophecy I came back to this thread

And found out that it wasn't prophecy who said it at all.........


I should lay off the beer...
