Vinny Magalhaes is Headed to Back to the UFC

| by

It seemed as if it was only a matter of time before Vinny Magalhaes returned to the UFC. And, if a report by the Brazilian news outlet Tatame is correct, Magalhaes is on his way.

Magalhaes, who was the season eight runner-up on The Ultimate Fighter, went 0-2 in his first stint with the promotion. After leaving the Octagon, Magalhaes went on to capture the M-1 light heavyweight championship.

Things between Magalhaes and M-1 quickly went south, and the fighter did not resign when his contract expired. The report stated that Magalhaes is expected to return in September, though nothing has been confirmed by the UFC yet.
