Nick Catone (9-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) apparently has his next fight.

The veteran middleweight today announced via Twitter that he's slated to fight T.J. Waldburger (15-7 MMA, 3-2 UFC) in December at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. Officials, though, have made no formal announcement.

The TUF 16 Finale takes place Dec. 15 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

I'm assuming he's dropping?

Tough fight to predict, Catone will be the larger man and could wrestle his way to victory but Waldburger's BJJ is crafty and you never know with him.

I was thinking the same thing. And Catone would probably be the one dropping down a weight class with his frame.

if it goes to the ground either top or bottom then catone should be very careful.

Although waldburger lost recently to brian ebersole, his ground transitions were amazing in that fight.

Catone is pretty big, but so is Aaron Simpson...if he can comfortably make that weight, he will have success. I like Waldburger a lot, and I love his submission game but if this is his next fight, he will probably get smothered.
