Well ... that didn't last very long.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Tom DeBlass, who announced his retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA) last November after posting back-to-back defeats inside the Octagon, is giving it another whirl in 2013.
From his official Twitter:
DeBlass (7-2), an experienced jiu-jitsu practitioner in "The Garden State," is expected to face fellow Ring of Combat (ROC) veteran Carlos Brooks under the Bellator MMA banner in his backyard of Atlantic City, New Jersey, on April 4, 2013.
Stay tuned for more on that fight in the coming weeks.
