According to a report the former PRIDE standout and submission specialist, once a top ten light heavyweight in the world will be making his return to MMA following a 2 year layoff. He mentioned that he would be returning in September, but didn't say who he would be facing a few weeks back. Now we know that he'll be facing UFC veteran Marvin "The Beastman" Eastman in September. Marvin Eastman had been fighting as a middleweight since his exit from the UFC, but I'm pretty sure this fight will take place at 205. I don't see Arona being able to make 185. I'm sure he'll try to string together a couple of wins against some 'named' opponents to stir interest from the larger organizations like the UFC and Strikeforce.
