Injuries and a suspension kept James Irvin out of action for all of 2009, but the heavy handed striker is looking to finally make his middleweight debut as he returns to action in the UFC this March.

Since losing by knockout to middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a 205-pound contest, Irvin has been looking to make the move to 185 pounds, but several knee injuries kept him sidelined.

He was scheduled to face Drew McFedries at UFC 98 before suffering a meniscus tear, and then a re-aggravation of that injury kept him out of his UFC 102 fight against Wilson Gouveia as well.

Irvin needs to rent a bubble boy outfit until March.

Match him up against Goren Relijic, Akiyama, Belcher, Cote, Drwal. Any of those would be good.

Those are great picks! Irvin matches up well with any of the MW strikers in the UFC. I think Wandy and Bisping would match up well with Irvin too.
