On last week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 5, Noah Thomas and Marlon Sims were expelled from the series for squaring off in the backyard of The Ultimate Fighter house. They are the first two fighters in the series’ history booted by UFC President Dana White for such an infraction.

They’re gone, but not forgotten. Spike TV released a statement announcing that Thomas and Sims are scheduled to return, on the series finale no less. The two will be the opening bout of the June 23rd live telecast set to feature coaches Jens Pulver and BJ Penn facing each other in the main event.

Thomas and Sims are the first competitors from the series to be announced for the finale.
