While the WEC will officially fold into the UFC beginning in 2011, the world's largest mixed martial arts promotion apparently isn't wasting any time to start playing with its new toys.

The UFC is looking to kick off its new featherweight division at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale with a contest between Leonard Garcia (14-6-1 MMA, 4-3-1 WEC) and Tyler Toner (10-2 MMA, 1-1 WEC).

MMAjunkie.com today confirmed with sources close to the event that Garcia's camp has verbally agreed to the proposed contest, which was first reported by MMAWeekly.com, though bout agreements have not yet been distributed.

Additional sources suggested Toner may not yet have been approached in regards to the contest at the time of the original report.

This might not be a bad idea, i would be interesting to thow a featherweight fight on the card and both fighters should put on a good show. These two wouldn't be my first choices to showcase the lighter weighter divisions, but should be interesting none the less

They don't really train together but I am certain they are pretty good friends. Garcia gets up here a couple times a year and I am not sure how often Tyler goes to Jacksons if at all.

They are for sure from the same camp. Tyler has a bright future in the UFC. He trains hard, teaches classes and is always improving. Garcia is a tough fight for anyone. He has UFC experience and has some big power. These are the thypes of guys that the UFC should be building IMO they can become stars in the UFC.
