Liverpool's Paul Sass hasn't featured inside the Octagon since his debut at UFC 120 back in 2010, but the 'Sassangle' will look to make an impression once again as the young Scouse fighter will be featuring on October's UFC on Versus 6 card in Washington.

The event is set for October 1st at the Verizon Centre, with Charlie Brenneman vs. Anthony Johnson and Matt Wiman vs. Mac Danzig already confirmed for the fight card.

Sass made note of his appearance Stateside via Twitter, but didn't mention an opponent. UFC UK confirmed that Sass would be on the bill, and he would face off against TUF finalist Michael Johnson.

Amassing a perfect 10-0 record on domestic shows such as OMMAC and Cage Gladiators, Sass became world renowned for ending the first seven via triangle choke. After beating top opponents like Jason Young and Rob Sinclair, he signed to the UFC and used the choke to dispatch Mark Holst in the first round of their fight in London.

Fans have been awaiting his return to see how his style fares against more top competition, and they will get their chance when he competes live on Versus.

Johnson is coming off the back of a TKO victory over Edward Faaloloto, following his TUF Finale loss to Jonathan Brookins in December.
