Chances are there are a good number folks out there who feel as though this weekend will mark the Octagon debut of lightweight Josh Thomson. However, “The Punk” actually called the UFC his professional home for a trio of tilts nearly a decade ago before signing with Strikeforce.

In addition to his UFC on FOX 7 fight against Nate Diaz involving an opportunity to introduce himself to a new generation of fans, Saturday night’s scrap will also provide Thomson with a chance to solidify a spot on the division’s short list of title-contenders.

The 19-5 Thomson recently provided some insight on his approach towards the pairing in a conversation with the UFC’s website:

“It’s going to be a tough fight. I think Georges St-Pierre kind of said it the right way; it’s hard to find guys who are of the style of Nick [Diaz, older brother] and Nate. It’s hard to find a long, good boxer that’s left-handed. It’s hard to find those and to find one that’s good on the ground. I don’t really know anyone in the sport that has those skills. So that being said, as far as stylistically, he poses a lot of problems. I’ve just been preparing. I’ve got a couple good left-handers, pro-boxers. As far as the grappling, I’ve got a good source of guys I’ve been training with at Checkmat, they’re good jiu-jitsu guys. I’ve been really just focusing on whatever it takes to win this fight.”

“I’m going to go out there and put on a show. I’ve been in this sport for too long. I wouldn’t say it doesn’t bother me when I lose, but I don’t think about losing when I go out there. I’m just focused on doing the best that I can and putting on a show and making sure I give it all I got. The fans will always get the best out of me knowing that it was what I’m planning on doing.”
