Nate Diaz will welcome Josh Thomson back to the UFC this coming April, as the two lightweights have signed on to compete at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Melendez. The card goes down April 20 from San Jose.
Diaz (16-8) was defeated this past December by current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson. Diaz, a teammate of Gilbert Melendez who will challenge Henderson for the belt, holds a 7-6 record inside the Octagon.
Thomson (19-5) left the UFC back in 2004 after going 2-1. He recently faced Melendez in Strikeforce, falling by decision.
