Return of "The Athlete," take two.

Former division middleweight standout Jason MacDonald will get a chance to prove he still belongs inside the Octagon (again) when he makes his return against Rafael Natal at UFC 124 on dec. 11 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Dominance MMA tweeted the big news on Oct. 6.

McDonald's return to the UFC went from dream to nightmare after breaking his leg while defending a takedown against opponent John Salter at UFC 113 back in May. The grisly injury required surgery and has kept "The Athlete" away from action for several months.

Natal entered the Octagon as a highly touted but relatively unknown fighter with a record of 12-2. "Sapo" would drop his promotion debut to Ultimate Fighter (TUF) cast member Rich Attonito by unanimous decision on Sept. 15.

UFC 124 will be headlined by Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre taking on fellow TUF 12 coach Josh Koscheck. Thiago Alves and John Howard as well as Dustin Hazelett and Mark Bocek are also expected to hook 'em up.
