Sources close to the fighter tell MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Saunders has agreed to fight at the event. However, a phone call to the fighter wasn't immediately returned today, and the UFC has made no official announcement regarding the event.

Good for him, but I don't really care to see him fight again.

It'll be really interesting to see who hes matched up with. Hes got the build and BJJ bottom game to give a lot of people fits on the ground.

wonder who he's going to fight, should be good once he gets exp, tall and lengthy, once he tech's up all this aspects should be decent to put on some exciting fights.

Man im telling you this Kid can do great, he has Good BJJ and he is pretty damn tall and a good striker, just get some wresteling and TKD and this guy will be a bad match up for most of the division.

Saunders is boring? Did you not watch the show? He presses the pace with the high kicks, and when he's on the ground keeps going for any submission possible.
I'm so excited to see him fight again. I said before that I think that he has the most potential out of all of the fighters from season 6.

I def. see what you're saying but I feel that Arroyo has a lot of potential as well. Maybe him and Ben could go at it at 86.

I'm kind of interested in seeing him fight in a preliminary bout.

This is funny i was only just thinking about him and other tuf guys and wondering when they fight next

Saunders has serious potential, Barrerra didnt let himlook that great in that fight but the guy has potential for sure, plus he has that smily giggle

So UFC 86 will be Rampage VS Forrest the 1st weekend in July, this fight would turn out to be a very nice prelim on it if Tamdem does get the fight, i like that call

The dude, though he annoyed the piss out of me on TUF, is fun to watch.
