A rumored bout between Frankie Edgar and Kurt Pellegrino has been agreed to for the Dec. 5 Ultimate Fighter Season 10 Finale.
The bout was first reported by ESPN’s Jon Anik. MMAWeekly.com sources confirmed the bout, saying that it has been verbally agreed to, though pen has not been put to paper yet.
The bout will mark seven months since Edgar (10-1) last stepped into the Octagon. Having lost the first fight of his career at UFC Fight Night 13 to Gray Maynard, he is currently on a two-fight winning streak. Edgar defeated Hermes Franca at UFC Fight Night 14, and then Sean Sherk at UFC 98.
Pellegrino’s (14-4) last loss was also at UFC Fight Night 13, submitting to Nate Diaz. He has been a little more active than Edgar recently, winning three consecutive bouts. He most recently earned a unanimous decision over Josh Neer at UFC 101 in Philadelphia.

Edgar is closer to the top of the 155 ladder while Pellegrino isn't even in the top 10.

Step down for Frankie...hopefully he can pull this out but I think he deserves someone like Florian instead.

I don't think Kurt can pull this one off....Frankie not going to stay on his back and mess around like Neer did, that's for sure!
