Hey Melon! Get your suit on! We need ya!

That was fast.

Not long after Jason High announced that he needed an emergency appendectomy (details), Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has found a suitable replacement in the form of well-traveled lightweight Charlie Brenneman, who makes his return to the Octagon after a 2012 release.

Further proving it always pays to stay in fighting shape.

"The Spaniard" has verbally agreed to move back up to 170 pounds to fight Beneil Dariush on less than two week's notice, according to MMA Weekly, as part of the UFC Fight Night 35 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1 on Jan. 15, 2014 from Duluth, Georgia.

Brenneman (19-5) was let go after struggling to build on his upset win over Rick Story in June 2011; however, since his untimely release, the bearded brawler has been able to rack up four straight wins on the regional circuit with three submission finishes.

Not too shabby.
