UFC re-signs welterweight Jason High

High previously fought once inside the UFC Octagon at UFC Fight Night: Florian vs. Gomi, where he dropped a unanimous decision to Pennsylvania-based wrestling stud Charlie Brenneman.

Following the defeat, High rattled off seven-straight victories, including a three-fight winning streak in Strikeforce.

Pretty impressive, eh?

Now though, High finds himself entering a stacked 170-pound division in hopes of making good on his second opportunity to make a name for himself under the coveted UFC banner.

Will he seize the moment, or will he falter under the pressure of the big stage?

Time will tell, but I, for one, am excited about the return of an engaging personality and well-rounded fighter in Mr. Jason High.

Welcome back, sir.

Letís see what you have in store for us.

Ken-Flo. Like a boss!

Jason high is actually a beast he's just inconsistent.

If he puts it together he'll give anyone trouble.

I think the UFC is just doing right by the Strikeforce guys, I don't really see Jason High as a UFC caliber WW.

Make the WW division great again

I have to agree here, at one point he may have been UFC WW material, but certainly not now that the division is brimming with all this talent.

I think he'll notch a few wins together against the lower end of the division. Can't see him beating many middle fighters let alone a top 10. Glad the UFC are giving him the chance to prove himself though.
