Two-time UFC title challenger Caol Uno will return to the promotion in June, squaring off with Spencer Fisher at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany, according to

After compiling a 14-3-2 record, Uno was recruited to the UFC and immediately challenged Jens Pulver for what would become the UFC lightweight title, but suffered a majority decision loss in the 2001 bout. After earning a win over Fabiano Iha, Uno suffered a first-round knockout loss to BJ Penn before bouncing back with victories against Yves Edwards and Thomas 2Din Thomas. He next rematched Penn for the then-vacant lightweight belt, but the matchup resulted in a draw and the 155-pound class was temporarily abolished.

Since leaving the UFC in 2003 Uno has gone 10-5-1, most recently suffering a unanimous decision loss to highly-regarded lightweight Shinya Aoki.

The Miletich-trained Fisher has gone 7-3 since debuting in the UFC in late-2005, winning three of his last four bouts inside the octagon dating back to mid-2007. Following a unanimous decision loss to Frank Edgar in November 2007, “The King” has won back-to-back contests over Jeremy Stephens and Shannon Gugerty.

UFC 99 takes place on June 13th at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany. For the latest UFC 99 rumors check out the UFC rumors section.
