The UFC and Golden Glory have apparently found common ground.

Heavyweight submission specialist John Olav Einemo (pictured) Wednesday announced that he will return to the Octagon, though no debut date was mentioned. The news comes on the heels of an announcement from Einemo's Golden Glory teammate, Siyar Bahadurzada, who tweeted on Tuesday that he had been offered a contract with the UFC.

While UFC president Dana White confirmed the Einemo signing at today's UFC 135 press conference in Denver, Bahadurzada's status is still in flux. According to the Shooto 183-pound world champion, he is still deciding whether to sign the deal.

Einemo's showing against Herman was not one that I thought warranted a release so I'm glad he is back. Bahadurzada is one i've always wanted to see in the ufc, so i hope he gets a deal worked out

I'd really like to see Einemo do well in the UFC. Don't think he'll ever be a contender, but a solid gatekeeper.

For a ground game he put on a good stand up war. Good to see him back for another fight or two.
