After months of shoulder rehabilitation, Jon Tuck is back on the UFC scene – but outside the Octagon.

Recently cleared by UFC doctors to start training again, Tuck will be a UFC ambassador for Thanksgiving and throughout this weekend in South Korea leading up to Fight Night 79 headlined by former training partner Benson Henderson.

Tuck will be joining heavyweights Mark Hunt and Minotauro Nogueira along with fellow up-and-comers Julianna Pena and Yair Rodriquez at autograph signings on Thanksgiving Day as well as Friday before the Saturday fights at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul.

It will mark the first time the UFC will host fights in Korea with Henderson, the former lightweight champion, being the headliner. His mother is Korean and he’s made numerous trips to South Korea.

Tuck was hoping to be on the same card, but his shoulder surgery pushed back the plans.
