Junior dos Santos is heading back to the Octagon…
The 36-year-old Brazilian mixed martial artist and a former UFC heavyweight championwill return to the cage later this summer.
dos Santos has agreed verbally to a matchup against Jairzinho Rozenstruik for UFC 252 on August 15, according to ESPN and Combate.
dos Santos (21-7) will look to snap a two-fight losing streak. He most recently lost to Curtis Blaydes via TKO in January.
Rozenstruik (10-1) just suffered his first pro loss when he got knocked out last month by Francis Ngannou in just 20 seconds. Prior to that, the Surinamese fighter won his first four UFC fights.
The UFC has yet to finalize where the event will take place.
