Affliction VP Tom Atencio is eyeing to jump back into fighting in February, reports the Press-Telegram in Long Beach, California.
"I will fight for somebody else not Affliction," Atencio told writer Miguel Lopez. "I have been wanting to fight for a long time. I just haven't had time. I still don't have time but I want to do it again."
Atencio has fought once before, winning a three-round decision at Total Combat 7 on Jan. 29, 2005 in Tijuana, Mexico.
The 41-year-old Atencio plans to compete in the welterweight division.
