It's deja vu all over again for Matt Hamill.

In his first fight back after retirement, Hamill (10-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) now will – once again – face Roger Hollett (13-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) after Vladimir Matyushenko (26-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC) was forced out of the fight with an injury. UFC officials on Tuesday announced the new booking – a re-booking – saying a torn Achille's tendon will keep Matyushenko out.

UFC 152 takes place Sept. 22 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto with a main card airing on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. The Hamill-Matyushenko bout was slated for the main card, and it is expected that Hamill-Hollett will appear there, as well.

Hamill originally was booked to face Hollett, a UFC newcomer, when it was announced this past month that he would return from a short retirement. But just three weeks ago, it was announced that Hollett had been forced off the card and Matyushenko had stepped in on short notice.

But with Matyushenko now hurt, Hollett is back in the mix. It is not clear why Hollett was removed from the fight with Hamill to begin with this past month, though he was not injured.

This might be the end of the line for Vlad, with his age at 41, and recovery time with a torn Achille's, it will be at least a year or more for him to come back.

Rumor is that Hollett wasn't injured, it was maybe something with a Bellator contract as he was suppose to fight in the upcoming tournament or something.

Jesus, I go to work for a few hours and I come back and there's like 10 injuries reported. I don't know Hollett, but I'm guessing the fight just got easier to pick. I had Hammill against Matyushenko, but I wasn't confident in the pick.
