After a nearly four-year absence from MMA, Nate Loughran (9-1) is getting back on the horse.

The UFC vet is dropping from middleweight to welterweight and is slated to meet Bellator and Tachi Palace Fights vet Jaime Jara (32-10) at "Cage Combat FC: The Return," which takes place Saturday at Grace Pavilion in Santa Rosa, Calif.

A student of onetime UFC middleweight challenger David Terrell, Loughran brings a virtually unblemished resume to the cage.

I thought Loughran would whoop Credeur and jump into contention at 185. I can't believe it's been 4 years. Jara is a tought first fight back to take in 4 years at a new weight class (170). I have high expectations for Loughran.

What was the reason he has been out for 4 years?
