Middleweight Chris Leben will return to action for the first time since testing positive for steroids last October when he takes on Jake Rosholt at UFC 102 on August 29th in Portland, Oregon.

MMA Junkie first reported the bout on Monday, confirming that the fighters had agreed to the matchup and are in the process of finalizing the fight.

After suffering a unanimous decision loss to Michael Bisping at UFC 89, Leben (18-5) tested positive for the banned steroid Stanozolol and was suspended by the UFC for nine months. He had previously won back-to-back fights over Alessio Sakara and Terry Martin.

Rosholt (5-1), a former collegiate wrestler and previously undefeated prospect, joined the UFC in February following his successful debut in the WEC over Nissen Osterneck, but suffered a first-round submission loss to Dan Miller in his debut.
