TUF 10 Finale Rumored Main Card

Matt Hamill vs. Jon Jones
TUF Finalist 1 vs. TUF Finalist 2
Frankie Edgar vs. Matt Veach
Houston Alexander vs. Kimbo Slice

The UFC promotes Matt Veach from the undercard to take on Edgar. Veach was scheduled to take on Mark Bocek on the undercard, before being called up.


  1. Random Name says:

    So, I guess we know Kimbo doesn't come back on the show, then, huh?

  2. he's certainly not a finalist. But a fight with houston is tough. I respect the ufc for not just feeding him cans to make him seem unbeatable like elite xc did.

  3. That sucks. I am starting to like Pellegrino. That would have been a tough fight for Edgar. Yeah, Kimbo could actually start a career in the UFC. Hopefully he has been working on some ground game.

  4. I think that would have been a gimme fight for edgar anyways. Everything pelegrino is agood at (mainly wrestling) Edgar is better at.

  5. joe daddy will be taking this fight with edger I think
