McCrory treating Saturday like "another day at the office"

After a six year absence Tamdan "The Barn Cat" McCrory makes his return to the UFC on Saturday against Josh Samman. McCrory recently left Bellator after disputes over a title shot, and was re-signed by UFC after the sports top organization released him in 2009.

While there's sure to be a range of emotions as he makes his way to the octagon, McCrory is ready to take care of business.

"I'll be pretty calm," he said. "Calmer than most people would think. I'm well prepared as it is. I'm confident in my game and in my skills so, for me it's another day at the office. I'm sure there will be some anxieties that come and go in spurts between now and the fight. But ultimately when you're there, that's your time to shine, that's when you're there to do your job and that's the most calm there can be because you know right then and there where the outcome's going to come from."

McCrory will fight as part of the undercard of UFC Fight Night on Saturday on the Fox family of networks.
