Brian Bowles Returns Against Damacio Page at UFC on Versus 3

Brian BowlesFormer WEC bantamweight champ Brian Bowles will return to action for the first time in a year when the 135-pound contender is expected to rematch Damacio Page at UFC on Versus 3 on March 3, according to MMAjunkie.

Bowles (8-1) suffered his first career loss when a broken hand ended his March title defense against Dominick Cruz, but could be just one win away from earning a rematch with Cruz for the UFC title he earned with a WEC 53 win over Scott Jorgesnen this past Thursday.

Page (12-5) posted back-to-back first-round wins over Marcos Galvao and Will Campuzano before falling to Demetrious Johnson last month at WEC 52.

The pair first met at WEC 35 in August 2008, with Bowles submitting Page with a guillotine 3:30 into the opening round.

The UFC on Versus 3 fight card is headlined by Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann and also includes Alessio Sakara vs. Maiquel Falcao and CB Dollaway vs. Mark Munoz.
