Former UFC heavyweight champion, Kevin Randleman, is in negotiations to ink a deal with the Japanese-based World Victory Road promotion to make a return to mixed martial arts action on May 18, according to MMAWeekly.com.

In addition, “The Monster” revealed during the interview that it’s also possible that he will take on Jeff Monson one month later during a Global Fighting Championships (GFC) event penciled in for sometime in June.

That’s an ambitious schedule for a fighter who has not competed since 2006 — a submission loss to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at Pride 32: “The Real Deal.” Not to mention Randleman recently survived a SERIOUS staph infection that could have killed him if went untreated.

Randleman — who is now training with XTreme Couture out of Las Vegas — was also recently stopped for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), intimidating a public officer and other charges in Sin City.

He has satisfied a one-year suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for providing a non-human urine sample following his loss to Rua.

The two-time NCAA Division I Wrestling Champion from Ohio State University defeated Pete Williams at UFC 23 in 1999 to capture the vacant heavyweight title. Randleman’s title reign was brief, however, when Randy Couture stopped him the following year via technical knockout (strikes) at UFC 28 in round three of their championship bout.

Best of luck on the comeback, Kevin. These last two years have been rough … it’d be nice to see you enjoy some success.

He's back and better the ever! He's training with Randy which he should done a long time ago but now's better then never right? He's has an extreme amount of potential and no doubt if he gets some submission defense he will be a tough fight for ANYBODY. Can't wait to see him get back to his winning ways under Randy's supervision and great gameplanning.

WAR RANDLEMAN!!!

This fight is a toss up for me because they both have mad wrestling skills. They could end up negating each other and making a boring fight...or it could be just all out crazy!!!

oh crap... you're right. That does happen alot with top level guys, they're both too good OR too scared. That's a big "or" too.

I still would like to see this battle because they are both short stocky HW's. Monsons fight against Sylvia was just ridiculous due to the size difference and Tim inability to commit.

Monson was an Abu Dhabi winner.So it is safe to assume he'll get a submission.I'll be rooting for Kevin,but you might be right about that.
