    What's up with him? Is he one of those guys that silently disappeared ?

    Newcastle's James Te Huna will also return from a two-year layoff, taking on Canadian slugger Steve Bosse, a former ice hockey enforcer who briefly retired just after being signed to the UFC.

    Te Huna will hold a significant experience edge over Bosse, and after two years off to repair multiple injuries he should be the heavy favourite.

    Injuries, which have plagued him. Hopefully he has had time to get them all sorted. He is fighting on UFC fight night 85 Brisbane.

    His last 3 fights have all been stoppage losses being plus he's 34. He's probably at a crossroad in his career.

    If he can stay healthy I think he can still make a legitimate run for a title.

    Not saying it's not possible but I wouldn't bet on it. Is he at MW or did he go back to LHW? Either way both those divisions don't have easy paths to the title.

    I honestly thought he got cut I guess not.
    I'd like to see him fight Dollaway next.

    not sure if srs.

    The dude seems like a nice guy, but it could be legitimately argued that he isn't even UFC caliber, let alone champion material.

    The dude's best win is probably Pokrajac or Jimmo. Every A-caliber fighter he's faced has destroyed him. A few mediocre talents have beaten him as well.

    I don't think it's even possible that he make a run at the title.
