"Daddy's" back.

After losing four fights in a row, Joe Stevenson was cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster earlier this year.

Tonight (Oct. 15, 2011), during the W-1 MMA: "Reloaded" broadcast, it was announced that Stevenson would be making his return to the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) by joining the Warrior MMA roster.

Stevenson was on hand in the broadcast booth to help with the color commentary, as well as to divulge that he plans to make his return sometime in February of 2012.

No word yet on who Stevenson's opponent will be.

After a tumultuous last several years in the lightweight division, Stevenson made the move to the 145-pound division when he fought Javier Vazquez at UFC on Versus 4 on June 26 in Pittsburgh, Penn.

The fight was seen by many to be Stevenson's last chance to stay employed by Zuffa.

After a less than stellar losing effort, Stevenson was immediately released.

Stevenson, a veteran fighter, has appeared in 45 MMA bouts and has been involved in the UFC "Fight of the Night" on three separate occasions.

What do you think, Maniacs? Does "Daddy" know best or should he have hung up the gloves? Are you interested in seeing if he's still got any gas left in the tank?
