Lightweights Mark Bocek and Matt Veach are expected to clash at the season ten finale of “The Ultimate Fighter,” according to a source close to the bout. Though bout agreements have yet to be signed, both parties have agreed to the fight and should finalize a deal soon.
The Palms Casino Resort hosts the heavyweight centered reality show finale on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas.
Bocek (7-2) took the summer off from competition after tearing his LCL in preparation for his last appearance at UFC 97, where he defeated David Bielkheden by submission. The decorated grappler has gone 3-2 in the Octagon since making his debut at UFC 73.
Veach (11-0) last month injured his back and was forced to withdraw from a scheduled bout with Evan Dunham at UFC 102, his second Octagon appearance since a successful debut against Matt Grice at UFC Fight Night 17. He trains with the H.I.T. Squad in Granite City, Ill.
