Bellator has just signed Aaron Rosa, who will return to the organization after a three year absence. The UFC vet will meet Mikhail Zayats in the final addition of the Bellator 103 card.

Rosa fought once before in Bellator, defeating Robert Villegas at the promotion’s 20th show. A little over a year later he was signed to the UFC, where he went 1-2 before being cut in March. Rosa currently holds a 17-5 record overall.

His opponent, Mikhail Zayats, is also looking to rebound after a loss. He was recently defeated by Emanuel Newton in the Bellator season 8 light heavyweight tournament final, breaking a seven fight winning streak.

The heavyweight match up is set to go down at Bellator 103, which will take place on October 11 at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas. It will feature the semifinals of the season 9 featherweight tournament, and will air live on Spike TV.

The final card is as follows:

• J.J. Ambrose vs. David Rickels
• Patricio Freire vs. Fabricio Guerreiro
• Joe Taimanglo vs. Justin Wilcox
• Aaron Rosa vs. Mikhail Zayts
• Cody Carrillo vs. Ricky Musgrave
• Jeimeson Saudino vs. Jesse Thornton
• Donnie Bell vs. Marcio Navarro
• Maurice Jackson vs. Matt Uhde
• Remy Bussieres vs. Blake Pool
• Wayman Carter vs. Carlos Eduardo
