All Fighters on Weight for TUF 10 Finale

By Greg Savage Dec 4, 2009
Roy Nelson and Brendan Schaub tipped the scales under the 265-pound heavyweight limit to put the stamp on the main event of “The Ultimate Fighter” Finale Saturday night in Las Vegas. Nelson (13-4), a burly former IFL champion, teetered just below the limit, weighing in at 263-pounds while his opponent Schaub (4-0) came in 23-pounds south at 240.

A showdown between fast-rising prospect Jon Jones and TUF alumnus Matt Hamill (7-2) became official as the athletes both hit the scales at 206 pounds. In what should be his stiffest test to date, Jones (9-0) will face a very tough customer in Hamill.

Frankie Edgar (10-1) and Matt Veach both came into their lightweight match at the 155 pound limit. Edgar returns after scoring impressive wins over Sean Sherk and Hermes Franca following his lone defeat at the hands of lightweight contender Grey Maynard. He will face the undefeated Matt Veach (11-0), who won his UFC debut against Matt Grice in February of this year.

Kevin Ferguson -- aka Kimbo Slice (212) -- will take on fellow brawler Houston Alexander (208) in a catch-weight bout contracted at 215 pounds. Ferguson (3-1) lost to finalist Roy Nelson and will look to notch his first UFC win against the hard-hitting Alexander.

Alexander (9-4) is hoping to rebound from three consecutive losses after setting the light heavyweight division on its ear with back-to-back knockouts of Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara to start of his UFC campaign.
