FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that the UFC will be making its Tennessee debut in Nashville on April 1 when it presents UFC Fight Night 18. Five Ounces of Pain was informed of the news by several sources close to fighters that are expected to compete on the card.

UFN 18 will be broadcast on Spike TV and will serve as a prelude to the season premiere for the ninth season of The Ultimate Fighter, which will feature a team of eight UK fighters coached by Michael Bisping facing a team of eight U.S.-based fighters expected to be coached by either Dan Henderson or Rich Franklin.

As of now, FiveOuncesOfPain.com has only been able to confirm one match for UFC 18, with the site having reported on Friday that TUF 8 lightweight champion Efrain Escudero will be making his formal UFC debut against Jeremy Stephens.

I have seen on one site that it is in Nashville and another that it is in Memphis either way I hope Rampage begs his way onto the card since he would want to fight in his home state.

No way Rampage is on this card but Tennessee seems like a smart place to expand.

Definitely makes sense to try out the Tennessee market but I highly doubt Rampage would ever be on a fight night card.
