Penn vs. Edgar 3 to headline TUF 19 Finale


Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn just finished taping the nineteenth season of the Ultimate Fighter and will fight in a third fight. Now we know when and where:

The UFC will make a little promotional history in July, and we now have the headliner for the tail end of back-to-back cards in the same venue.

After coaching opposite each other on Season 19 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” former lightweight champions Frankie Edgar (16-4-1 MMA, 10-4-1 UFC) and B.J. Penn (16-9-2 MMA, 12-5-1 UFC) will headline the TUF 19 Finale card on July 6 in Las Vegas. News of the card’s main event came from Ariel Helwani on Wednesday night’s edition of “UFC Tonight” on FOX Sports 1.

The TUF 19 Finale will take place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas with a main card on FOX Sports 1. The night before, the UFC 175 pay-per-view takes place at the same venue. Both cards are part of the promotion’s “International Fight Week,” which includes a UFC Fan Expo, as well as fan events throughout the community.

Pretty sure they said the end of April but I could be wrong. All I want to see his crazy eyed BJ walking to the cage creepily licking his lips and smashing Frankie in the first. My heart can't take seeing BJ being a punching bag anymore. One more run BJ!! Let's do this shit!!

I'm struggling to understand why the UFC is putting two events on in two days at the same arena - and why they are leaving Penn Vs Edgar off the PPV one? Bizarre!OK, it's International Fight Week, but this is just milking the fans for all their worth. It would be much better to have one massive PPV event rather than two watered down ones.

Honestly, I feel like Silva dropped the ball. But I'm pretty sure BJ Penn forced his hand. Hope he doesn't retire after this ass kicking.

WAR BJ! Hope he comes out and stamps him like he did Hughes in their rubber-match.

The big interest in this fight is BJ at 145, can he make it and what does he look like at FW. But yeah its not a fight anyone called for but its still a good fight and its a great free main event.

BJ you are the best but you'll probably get jabbed and jogged again. I hope I'm proving wrong but I think BJ is past his prime by a number of years.
