Update: Joslin is telling tkoxtreme that he will not be healed in time to fight on the April card. - DS
MMA on Tap has learned that Jeff “The Inferno” Joslin will make his return to active competition when the UFC ventures into Canada for the first time in history on April 19th.
Since losing a unanimous decision in his UFC debut against Josh Koscheck at UFC Fight Night 7, a fight that impressed UFC officials enough to invite him back for another go-round, Joslin has battled a variety of injuries that have prevented him from stepping back into the cage.
Joslin was originally scheduled to face both Chris Lytle and Kuniyoshi Hironaka at separate UFC events in 2007 but was forced to bow out of both fights after suffering two separate injuries during training.
With his health nearing 100%, Joslin will look to get back on the winning track when the Hamilton, Ontario native joins fellow Canadians Georges St. Pierre, Jason MacDonald, and Jonathan Goulet in attempting to please the fans that will pack the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec this spring.
An opponent for Joslin has not yet been announced.
