MMA pioneer Pat Miletich working toward summer return

Former UFC champion and MMA pioneer Pat Miletich (29-7-2) is in current negotiations for a summer return to the cage.

Pat reported his desire for a summer bout during his recent appearance on the most recent episode of ESPN.com's "MMA Live."

"I'm in negotiations with a couple different organizations right now," Miletich said. "I think I'll be fighting this summer, a big name guy, and it will definitely be on TV. It'll be exciting."

Miletich did not specify which organizations he was currently negotiating with, but the rapidly expanding Strikeforce organization recently inked "The Croatian Sensation" to a commentating deal.

Sources close to the organization indicated to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Strikeforce may be interested in promoting a bout between Miletich and fellow MMA legend Frank Shamrock.

Both Strikeforce officials and Shamrock denied that they were discussing that matchup when contacted by MMAjunkie.com. Shamrock did indicate he would be open to the possibility.

"I thought [Miletich] was retired," Shamrock said. "Well, tell him if he wants some to come and get it."

Shamrock is currently scheduled for an April 11 main event contest with Nick Diaz for Strikeforce, a bout in which Miletich has been announced as broadcast team member.

Miletich last appeared in December 2008 in a knockout win over Thomas Denny in the main event of Adrenaline MMA 2.

Promoted by Miletich's long-time associate and manager Monte Cox, Adrenaline MMA has a third event scheduled for May 30 in Atlantic City, N.J.

Cox was unavailable for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com to gauge his interest in booking another appearance for the 41-year-old Miletich.

Miletich's December 2008 bout was his first appearance since a September 2006 loss to Renzo Gracie in the now-defunct IFL.
