Following a win against Ryo Kawamura at World Victory Road: Sengoku 2 in May, Kevin “The Monster” Randleman was able to get a decision victory in his first fight in almost two years.

Randleman was on the shelf due to suspensions and injuries that at one point, nearly had “The Monster” on his death bed.

Now, Randleman looks to make it two wins in a row when he returns to action before at one of the upcoming Sengoku cards.

“My next fight will be in Japan with World Victory Road before the end of the year,” Randleman told MMAnews.com, “They haven't thrown an opponent for me out there yet but who it is going to be better me ready.”

With a record of 17-12, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion has had ups and downs thoughout his career but still has plans to someday wear a championship belt again.

Randleman has been a fixture in Japanese MMA for over 5 years since making his PRIDE debut in 2002.

Most recently, Randleman can be seen in a TapouT Films short film entitled Pitfight Redux that features another former UFC Heavyweight Champ, Mark “The Hammer” Coleman who is also a training partner of Randleman's.
