Affliction vice president Tom Atencio will return to MMA action more than four years after successfully making his debut in the sport, as he’ll appear on the June 27th MMA pay-per-view event at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi, which is headlined by Bobby Lashley vs. Bob Sapp.

MMA Fanhouse first reported the bout yesterday, with Atencio confirming he’ll be appearing on the card against an opponent to be named in a bout that’s likely to take place at 160-pounds.

Atencio (1-0) made his MMA debut in January 2005 with a decision victory over David Martinez at Total Combat 7.

Also confirmed for the card was a heavyweight bout between Pedro Rizzo (16-8) and Gilbert Yvel (35-13-1).
