Sidelined for a year due to injuries, UFC welterweight Brian Foster has received permission to fight outside the organization and now meets Jack Mason in a 181-pound catchweight bout at Cage Warriors 44.

Cage Warriors executive Graham Boylan today confirmed the plans with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The event takes place Oct. 1 at HMV Forum in London and streams online in North America.

Foster (15-5) vs. Mason (17-8) takes the co-headlining slot.

Earlier this year, Foster was pulled from UFC 129 after doctors discovered a brain hemorrhage, which followed another devastating injury for the fighter: a hard kick to the groin in early March that caused one of his testicles to burst. Doctors were forced to remove it.

I'm going to wipe that image from my mind.

I like that they gave him permission to fight outside the UFC to tune up. I'd hate to see his career in the UFC in danger due to returning from injuries.

This guy has been chomping at the bit to get back. Kid always brings it, just can't wait to see him back and healthy.
