Two years after he left, Todd Duffee (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is returning to the octagon.

The 26-year-old heavyweight is set to fight Phil De Fries (9-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC 155, according to a recent report by Las Vegas Sun that was also confirmed by UFC officials.

UFC 155 takes place Dec. 29 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and airs live on pay-per-view and FX.

Duffee fills in for Matt Mitrione, who was slated to fight De Fries before he replaced an injured Shane Carwin against Roy Nelson at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

Duffee is one big dude. De Fries is going to get man handled.

Happy to see Duffee back. Decent test for him on his welcome back fight. Still expect him to win.

The rumor was he was threatening event or UFC staff, etc.....
Glad he is getting a second shot, I thought he was a fun fighter to watch....except in that horrible display against Overeem.

He had a strange UFC run indeed
Smashed Tim Hague in 7 seconds
Got his block knocked off in the 3rd by Russow
Gets fired?

Glad to see him back tho!

I didn't see this coming. Good fight though. De Fries might be taking a nap.

I love it! Duffee is still pretty young and I'm expecting him to have improved quite a bit, I've never seen his ground game so unless his BJJ is awful I think he can keep this standing and get a KO.

so a loss to overeem and then one win outside the octagon warrants a return? i do think that duffee has lots of potential but it seems odd to comeback so soon.
