Former UFC interim heavyweight champion has been teasing his return to MMA for months, and its seems that perhaps he's finally found a home at Rizin.

Carwin tweeted a photo with Jerry Millen, the vice president of Rizin, on Saturday, and followed it up with a photo of a pair of Rizin gloves with the caption, "Hey [Rizin] you are going to need bigger gloves, these do not fit, not even close!"

The heavyweight even hinted at a potential match-up with when he replied to a fan saying he'd already agreed to the fight, and they were just waiting on Emelianenko.

Carwin hasn't fought since his loss to Junior dos Santos at UFC 131, more than five years ago, but has been vocal about his desire to return to the sport.
