"Ken Flo" (4-3) will return to the Octagon on April 5, 2007, for the first time since losing to Sean Sherk at UFC 64 back in October, according to

He will face fellow lightweight Dokonjonosuke Mishima (17-5-2), who was most recently defeated via guillotine choke in his UFC debut at UFC 65 by The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season two welterweight champ Joe Stevenson.

We subscribe to Florian's email newsletter, which is actually rather well put together and contains some really good UFC information (to subscribe click here).

Anyway, in the most recent addition Florian had this to say:

I have been busy training and look forward to returning to the UFC in March.

Based on this statement, it was assumed — incorrectly — that he might fight on the UFC 68 card, which is scheduled for March 3, 2007, in Columbus, Ohio. There were also rumors that he would fight Spencer Fisher, but those, too, appear to be wrong.
