In his first fight since winning the welterweight crown on "The Ultimate Fighter 9," James Wilks (6-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is expected to face fast-rising 170-pounder Matt Brown (9-7 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in October at UFC 105.

A source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the bout is "close to finalized" and that bout agreements could be signed shortly.

i underestimated wilks the whole time he was on the show and i think his ground game and reach could give brown problems, im not sure who to pick in this one.

And let's not forget the absolutely horrible situation Matt Brown's been in lately with his dad being diagnosed with cancer...

I hope Matt can come through this one, after all he's been through lately he sure as hell deserves it!

Going with the Immortal. I think he finishes Wilks before it even hits the mat.

Gotta take my boy Matt Brown! really good dude..and it sucks that he has to go through what's going on in his life right now.

He will come in more motivated then ever, and put Wilkes to sleep early.

Matt Brown Round 1 KO/TKO. every time he gets in the octagon he improves so much. i thought the fight with Pete Sell was going to be really close and Brown came out and just smashed Sell. i think this is going to end pretty early.

I think Wilks can pull this one off, Brown is a great fighter, but if it goes to the ground, I think James has the advantage.

I think this is a bad matchup for brown, his sub defense is sub par, he has the advantage standing but if Wilks gets him to the mat it's over. Good way to build up Wilks.

Good match up... I think I'll take Wilks though for this one cuz I got burned pretty badly taking DeMarques last time.

Lightning by 2nd round submission

Brown by brutal knockout in the first round. Terrible fight for Wilks. Hope Browns dad recovers from this.

Wilks can take a punch and is calm enough to get this to the floor where he can dominate. Wilks by sub rd 1.
