Spike TV today confirmed that cast member Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson is scheduled to compete at the Dec. 5 live finale for "The Ultimate Fighter 10."

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported that Ferguson (3-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) meets Houston Alexander (9-4 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in a catch-weight bout, but Spike TV officials won't announce his opponent until after a two-hour, season-ending Dec. 2 episode of "TUF 10," which is the latest edition of the UFC's reality series.

Spike TV has teased the possibility of Ferguson, who lost an opening-round matchup to former IFL champion Roy Nelson in the third episode of the series, as possibly re-entering the competition as an injury replacement.

The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale takes place at the The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The night's main card, including a Jon Jones vs. Matt Hamill headliner, airs on Spike TV.

Saw something on the end of an episode about Kimbo taking over for Mitrione i think.
I hope so, I love watching Kimbo Fights.
He just has a natural crowd pleasing ability i just wish he'd win something now so we can start taking him seriously.
However i doubt that will happen till he gets his ground game worked out.

Well at least there won't be any fighting on the ground when he takes on alexander so his chances of winning go up I'm looking forward to that fight

If you believe Houston, it's set. He said today on a radio show in Omaha he's fighting Kimbo.

haha....funny that Kimbo is still such a big ratings draw that he has to play prominently in every episode and always be left out there as a possible returner..ratings must really struggle without him featured prominently. I think SPIKE may have problems with TUF next season....
