Chael Sonnen will make his return to the UFC this October at UFC 136.
Sonnen, who has been out since last year's superb battle against Anderson Silva, will make his return to the Octagon on Saturday, October 8th at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Sonnen's opponent on the main card in Texas will be "All-American" Brian Stann, with the bout being verbally agreed to on Wednesday.
A bout between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard for the UFC Lightweight Championship and Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian for the UFC Featherweight Championship has been rumoured for the pay-per-view in recent weeks.
Stann will go into the bout on a 3-0 run at middleweight.
