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?

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

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.
