After more than a year layoff Sean Sherk will finally return to the Octagon. Since his last fight at UFC 98 where he lost to new champ Frankie Edgar, Sherk was supposed to fight at UFC 104, 108 and on Versus, but couldnt due to his continous injuries. Now a source inside Seans camp reveals that the former Lightweight champion will return to action on September 25.

His opponent will be Evan Dunham who has quickly made a name for himself by defeating Per Eklund, Marcus Aurelio, Efrain Escudaro and recently Tyson Griffin. Both men always come to fight and have very impressive records as Dunham is undefeated (11-0) and Sherk is (33-4) with all four losses coming from future champions.

Will Sherks long layoff affect his performance or will his experience prevail, we will find out September 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana
