44 year old veteran, and former UFC middleweight champion Murilo Bustamante (14-8-1) has decided to return to action despite a recent career skid (the Top Team co-founder has compiled an unimpressive record of 2-4 in his last six outings).
Speaking with Sherdog.com, Bustamante shared the news that heâ€™ll be returning to headline Clube da Luta, in Rio de Janeiro on July 20th.
Bustamante will meet DEEP veteran Yuya Shirai (20-9) in a 170 pound tilt.
The bout will mark Bustamanteâ€™s second bout in as many years. In his last professional outing he was stopped by TUF alum Jesse â€œJT Moneyâ€ Taylor at Impact FC 2.
Also scheduled for the Clube da Luta event is a co-headlining bout between Delson Heleno (21-5) and Luis dutra Jr. (10-2-1) to be contested at 155 pounds.
