Former UFC fighter James McSweeney will make his return to the ring this weekend for his third fight this year, as he takes on Australia's own Jeff King at Kings of Kombat 7 from the Springers Leisure Centre in Melbourne on June 23, 2012.
"The Hammer" is 5-1 in his past six fights, winning all of them inside the first round and three of them by submission. After his last fight in March, he packed up and moved to Las Vegas, where he now trains with Robert Drysdale.
McSweeney also trains striking under Kit Cope and believes fans will see a new and improved "Hammer" in his next fight, as he looks back to get back to the big show very soon.

It's amazing to see a guy who had one of the toughest roads in MMA with pretty much no cage fighting training, to still learn and develop as a fighter and to train hard everyday to become the best fighter he can be.
If McSweeney can make it to the top, he will be one of the best comeback stories in MMA for sure.
