Seven years after he left, Josh Thomson (19-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is returning to the octagon.

UFC officials today announced the ex-Strikeforce lightweight champ will fight Nate Diaz (16-8 MMA, 7-6 UFC) at UFC on FOX 7, which takes place April 20 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

It's not yet known whether the bout will be broadcast on the event's FOX-televised main card or on the preliminary-card, which serves on FX and Facebook...

w/ Bendo/Melendez, Hardy/Brown & Cormier/Mir, FOTN is guaranteed to no one just yet!

Anyone else find it ironic that Diaz is fighting on 4/20?

Put him on the FOX part, so he can flip the bird again.

That's awesome! Love this fight!

I wonder if they'll put another SF vs a UFC guy on the main card and make it a SF vs UFC event. Have a feeling this event is going to be stacked either way!

I'm excited but at the same time I'm not. I wanted Thomson to win his first fight back but I don't think he'll make it past Diaz.
