For those of you who don’t already know, Soa “The Hulk” Palelei (18-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is a heavyweight mixed martial artist who has fought for both the UFC and Pride, as well as other promotions. The native of Perth, Australia proudly announced today that he is once again employed by the UFC.

Since losing to Daniel Cormier in fall of 2010, “The Hulk” has strung together eight straight victories, all of which have come by way of referee stoppage. Most recently, Palelei disposed of former UFC heavyweight Sean McCorkle by first-round TKO at “AFC 4” in December.

Palelei’s initial stint with the UFC was a brief one, after losing his debut to Eddie Sanchez by TKO in 2007, “The Hulk” was let go by the promotion. No opponent has been named for Palelei’s return, but expect “The Hulk” to ‘Smash’ on to the heavyweight scene in the near future.
