Kevin Randleman, known for his explosiveness and athleticism is set to make a comeback in June fighting grappling wizard Jeff "The Snowman" Monson. After this fight, Kevin says he plans on fighting four to five times in 2008.

This may give MMA fans the chance to see a rematch with Fedor Emelianenko. In the first fight with Fedor, Randleman suplexed Fedor onto his head, a move that many thought would cost Fedor the match. Emelianenko recovered quickly, and ended the fight moments later by way of a kimura.

I'm SO excited! I'm happy for him that he got over that staph infection. That was sick! Shows how much of a true warrior he is. He's one of my favorites so I can't wait to see him back in action. I just hope he starts training at Xtreme Couture like I thought I heard he was, so he can get some sub defense. As long as he can defend those subs, he has this fight in the bank.

Fedor vs Randleman 2? YES!! At least Fedor is fighting somebody with a name. And one of my favorites. But seriously though. Randleman could seriously be a beast if he goes and trains with Randy. But I don't care. As long as I see him fight.

Good Luck! WAR RANDLEMAN!!!

Two huge powerful wreslters well Monson is abudabi but still. I hope they exchange for a little bit to see if Randleman improved his striking.

Too close to call a winner im leaning more towards Monson but i'll be pulling for KEvin.

I feel bad for Randleman. Unless he's worked on his submission defence im almost willing to say that this is a guranteed submission win for Monson. But Randleman also knocked out CC so maybe he lands a huge shot on Monson and puts him away. I just wish Randleman made his comeback in the ufc against Tito or Rashad or someone.

I think Monson wins this. But I want Kevin too. It will be a close fight.

What org is this in M-1? They're putting together a nice card, with Aleks and Barney, this fight and perhaps Fedor and Rizzo.

Probably Art of War. But it would be a nice addition for an M-1 card but they both would probably do better in a cage.

M-1 used to be in a cage, with Fedor I think they'll be in a ring though.

I'd actually give this one to Randleman. Jeff is great at sub wrestling, but hes very slow and doesn't have good instincts in the stand-up. I think Randleman would actually win this on the feet fairly easily, and would win it hands down in a cage.

I haven't seen any recent pics of Kevin so this may be a bad question but has he put on the weight he lost since the staph infection. I heard he loss Alot after that horrible tragedy. Glad to see him back and id be pulling for him but thats a tough first fight. Might end up as a dominate performances for Kevin or a sub for Monson. Either way will be a good fight in my eyes.

Actually, the weight is a really good question. Randleman and Monson both fought at LHW and HW, so you have to assume Randleman is at least 205 if hes taking the fight.

I'm gonna have to go with Monson, by round 2 sub. Only because it seems like randleman might be rushing back into things a bit soon, esp. with as bad as his infecion was....

I'm happy about this fight but shocked at the same time. Randleman came really close to dieing from staph and lost a LOT of weight due to this (mainly muscle from what I read). I would love to see Kevin back in the mix but I hope this isn't to soon for him. Then on top of that he is fighting someone I think is at least in the top 15 of HWs.
