"Daddy's" back.

After losing four fights in a row, Joe Stevenson was cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster earlier this year.

Tonight (Oct. 15, 2011), during the W-1 MMA: "Reloaded" broadcast, it was announced that Stevenson would be making his return to the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) by joining the Warrior MMA roster.

Stevenson was on hand in the broadcast booth to help with the color commentary, as well as to divulge that he plans to make his return sometime in February of 2012.

No word yet on who Stevenson's opponent will be.

Let's see if he can string together some W's and get his confidence back on track. He looked like a rising star right after TUF, but after getting crushed by BJ the way he did, he fell off the wagon. Hope things turn around for him

He's only 29.

Why are people so quick to jump on a fighter and tell him to retire just because they're on a losing streak? I don't get it.

I agree, but will add that his age probably doesn't matter as much since he has been fighting so long. Joe Daddy is old school. It seems like as we start to have more examples of what the arc of a fighter's career looks like, we are seeing a pattern. It isn't so much about what age a fighter starts fighting that determines career so much as how long a fighter has been fighting.
