Jason "Mayhem" Miller vs Aaron Simpson at UFC 132

On Friday, Jason "Mayhem" Miller (24-7 MMA, 0-1 UFC) announced he was returning to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

On Saturday, UFC brass announced he's already lined up to fight.

UFC officials today announced Miller will meet wrestling standout Aaron Simpson (8-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) at July's "UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber II" event.

Miller's return comes six years after a lone appearance at welterweight in which he was dominated by Georges St-Pierre. "Mayhem" now returns to the UFC as a thoroughly experienced middleweight. Miller is 12-3 with one no contest since his ill-fated trip to the octagon and lost a unanimous decision to Jake Shields for the vacant Strikeforce middleweight belt in November 2009.

Outside of the cage, Miller has kept busy as the host of MTV's popular reality show "Bully Beatdown," which completed its third season this past December. It's unknown whether a fourth season is in the works.

Meanwhile, Simpson returns to action after a recent one-sided beatdown of Mario Miranda at UFC Fight Night 24. The victory snapped a two-fight losing streak for Simpson, who had dropped back-to-back outings against Mark Munoz and Chris Leben. Prior to the skid, Simpson had notched seven-straight wins to open his career, including three octagon victories and one win under the WEC banner.

UFC 132, which is the UFC's Independence Day-weekend show, takes place July 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The night's main card, including a championship headliner between bantamweight titleholder Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber, airs live on pay-per-view.

Frikken siked.

I think Miller's JJ is more than enough to either sweep and submit from the top, or sweep or scramble and win on the feet.

Was really hoping for some Bisping vs Miller TUFness. Oh well, assuming he can string some wins together, he'll innevitably face Bisping or the "Republitard" and the trashtalk will be phenomonal!

Miller usually has a tough time against wrestling based fighters. This is winnable though.

Tough fight for Milller, but I think he takes it by UD

Simpson doesn't have a great chance anywhere in this one. He is no pushover by any means, but Miller should prove to be too steep of a challenge. (It's not that Simpson isn't legit, it's how legit Mayhem is in comparison.) Miller's wrestling is quite underrated, but only because he's relied so heavily on natural talent at times. This is a very cool matchup, and it's not quite the "throwing to the wolves" that I expected for Miller.

I think Miller has this in the bag, but on a side note, I hope he makes another season of Bully Beatdown and starts using superstar UFC fighters this time around lol.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Can't wait to see Mayhem in action in the UFC!!!

.. However, can't help but wish he was on a different card, because this one is already super stacked meaning he's most likely going to be on the undercard

Picking Simpson for a UD.

Mayhem is not that great at defending TD's obviously Simpson will realise what a chance this is , and basically will wrestle **** his way to a decision and big scalp victory.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Wonder if Mayhem keeps his walk ins flamboyant as he did in Strikeforce/Japan now that he is on the big stage again?
