Marlon Sims and Noah Thomas will never be allowed to fight in the UFC, reports Steve Sievert of Houston Chronicle's Brawl Sports.

"Not only are they not fighting in the finale, they'll never fight in the UFC. Spike wanted that fight. It ain't gonna happen," UFC President Dana White told Brawl Sports.

During the eighth episode of TUF 5, Marlon Sims and Noah Thomas broke into an impromptu fight in the backyard which ended when they shook hands and agreed to face each other like professional athletes in an Octagon.

interesting that this news came so late though... I wonder if he agreed to it himself then backed down when he realized how much criticism it was getting.

bullshit, Dana wanted to cash in, then he realized that he looked like a hypocrite and now he's screwed both fighters.

They screwed them selves. Dana might have thought about cashing in, but he knows its a bad idea. It doesn't matter anyway, this fight is gonna happen somewhere. Some smaller show will get these two on the card. This fight will be on the next K-1 show right before Jason Giambi fights a team of midgets and right after I gouge my own eyes out.

a couple of guys have a few too many and a fight starts, wow, I've never heard of that. If Dana throws these 2 guys out of the UFC then he should have tossed all the drunks since the 1st TUF who trashed the houses and made the UFC look worse than these two ever did.

dude, you know that in TUF 1, leben and bob gave each other space and nothing really happened besides leben ******* up a door, a window, and his own knuckles, and he paid the damage

i own TUF 2 on dvd and i dont remember any drunken behaviour cause one of the guys in the house was like "we watched season 1 and we're not gonna be like the guys one TUF 1, we are going to be focused bla bla"

and i dont think there was anything in 3 & 4

Good call on Dana's part. Have to appreciate the fact he is lookin out for the cred of the UFC. Still sucks that they dont get the opportunity of a lifetime but they did it to themselves, cant feel sorry for em.
