Tim McTiernan@tmt2393Correspondent IAugust 3, 2012

After one year out of the Octagon, Matt Hamill has decided to return to the UFC, and will make his return at UFC 152 in Toronto, Canada.

Hamill will face Roger Hollett, who is 13-3 with 11 finishes and will be making his UFC debut.

Hamill was last seen in the Octagon at UFC 133, where he was TKO'd in the second round by Alexander Gustafsson. Prior to that, he dropped a unanimous decision to Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the main event of UFC 130.

Hollett will be making his Octagon debut, after fighting one time with Bellator, where he earned a split decision victory over John Hawk.

Overall, Hollett has four (T)KO victories and seven submission victories, while fighting in Bellator and MFC. He is currently on a five fight winning streak, with two decisions, two submissions and one TKO.

It is unclear at this time if this fight will be a part of the preliminary card or the main card.
