The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 cast member and legendary (in his own mind) street brawler Marlon Sims (3-2) is set to return to action against super tough up-and-comer Billy Evangelista (5-0) in a 155-pound bout this weekend on the Strikeforce: “Shamrock vs. Cung Le” under card.

No major site is reporting this match up — not even ProElite.com or Strikeforce. However, Strikeforce Vice President Mike Afromowitz today confirmed the showdown with MMAmania.com.

Sims has had one fight since his backyard brawl with Noah Thomas on the set of TUF 5, losing to Pat Minihan via submission (rear naked choke) in December 2007. Evangelista, on the other hand, has been turning heads on the local Fresno, Calif., scene with his undefeated record and fantastic promise.

Don’t expect this one to go the distance.

Interesting you ask that question, because in fact he didnt, he was out cold for like a minute after the RNC and started trying to fight the guys taking care of him when he came too (very briefly)

I'll be curious to see what happens when he gets caught in an armbar.

Marlon Sims the Street Fighting Legend who took one punch from Matt Wiman and folded like paper, all jokes aside i hope Billy can get the win but it wouldnt really be that bad if Sims turned into a crazy person and destroyed Evangelista
