A light heavyweight battle between Jon Jones and Matt Hamill, along with a lightweight showdown between Frankie Edgar and Kurt Pellegrino, have both been confirmed to take place on “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” Finale through Spike TV and the UFC.
The TUF 10 Finale is set to take place on December 5 from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, airing live on Spike TV.
“Bones” Jones sports an undefeated record of 9-0 and is widely praised as one of the brightest prospects in mixed martial arts. His career in the UFC has seen him rack up wins over the likes of Andre Gusmao and Stephan Bonnar by decision, before most recently stopping former heavyweight Jake O’Brien with a nasty guillotine choke in the second round of their UFC 100 bout.
Hamill’s record of 6-2 is deceptively impressive considering he made his professional fighting debut with the promotion. While “losing” a hotly contested decision to Michael Bisping and suffering a TKO defeat at the hands of Rich Franklin, Hamill has compiled wins over the likes of Seth Petruzelli, Tim Boetsch, and most recently Mark Munoz at UFC 96.
Edgar has established himself as a top dog in the UFC’s lightweight division with wins over Tyson Griffin, Hermes Franca and Sean Sherk, while Pellegrino is currently riding a three fight win streak in the UFC with wins over Thiago Tavares, Rob Emerson and Josh Neer.
