NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE, England – Late last year, Evan Tanner announced that he had signed to once again compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Now there is a date and an opponent to round out his return.

As part of a question and answer session on Friday, UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan stated that Evan Tanner will face Yushin Okami when the promotion makes its Canadian debut.

That event will be headlined by a championship bout between current welterweight titleholder Matt Serra and interim champion Georges St. Pierre. It will take place on April 19 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Joe Silva, UFC’s vice president of talent relations, confirmed Rogan’s comments about the fight.

great fight....i like both, so it doesn't matter who wins. But it is nice to see Tanner back in the cage. Wonder what his hair will look like this time...

Like Evan Tanner, but I feel this is a bad match up, especially after a long hiatus. I think Okami will get him down and pound it out.

I think Okami is a dark horse in the middle weight division and a dangerous fighter. He's too consistent and gets better with each fight. Franklin had his hands full with him and almost lost. Give Okami a little more time and he will rise to the top.
