George Roop has agreed to fight at Ultimate Fight Night 18. The show will lead in to The Ultimate Fighter on April 1. Earlier today we reported that the event will take place at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium and will serve as a lead in to The Ultimate Fighter Season 9.

I think he is pretty small for the LW division.

Not quite sure why they're bringing Roop back. He wasn't a hugely popular guy on TUF and he lost to Shane Nelson. I thought for sure he would be sent packing, but apparently he'll lose once more before hitting the road.

They'll probably use him as a bounce back opponent for Tyson Griffin or something. I don't see Roop getting a fight he can win.

Set him up against another tuf cast member for a prelim fight. Maybe kaplan or something.

Kaplan should never fight in the UFC again. Roop is obviously not talented enough to be worth building up like that.
