Caol Uno wants to return to the UFC

PDG: Out of all the great battles you have had with some of the biggest names in the sport, what have been your favorite and why? Caol Uno: All of my fights are memorable, and they all meant something to me. But if I had to pick a fight, it would be my second fight against BJ Penn (Draw at UFC 41). It was very memorable for me. PDG: You are thirty-eight years of age. Some consider this be an older age for fighters. Do you believe you are still at an age to make another run for a title? Caol Uno: I’m not going to say I can take the title, but my challenge is to get back into the UFC for the 3rd time, at this age.
If he wins this weekend that is three in a row including a win over Anthony Avila who was 11-1 when Uno beat him.
