Pellegrino injured, out of TUF10 Finale bout with Frankie Edgar

The injury bug continues to bite.

UFC lightweight Kurt Pellegrino (14-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) is the latest victim, and an injured knee has forced "Batman" out of his scheduled contest with Frankie Edgar (10-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale.

Edgar today posted the change on his official Twitter account, and AOL FanHouse has since learned herniated discs have forced Pellegrino out of action for approximately three weeks.

Edgar and Pellegrino were slotted for the co-main event of The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on Dec. 5 at The Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

Edgar hinted on his Twitter account that a replacement opponent would be named shortly.

Edgar seeks to return to the cage for the first time since his upset win over former UFC champ Sean Sherk in May. Aside from a decision loss to Gray Maynard in April 2008, Edgar is undefeated in his four-year pro career, which has included victories over notables such as Jim Miller, Tyson Griffin, Spencer Fisher and Hermes Franca.

Meanwhile, Pellegrino had hoped to sustain the momentum of his current three-fight win streak. Pellegrino largely flew under the radar after going 3-3 in his six UFC fights but has since posted decision wins over Thiago Tavares and Josh Neer and a submission win over Rob Emerson.

•Matt Hamill vs. Jon Jones
•Frankie Edgar vs.
TBA*•Finalist No. 1 vs. Finalist No. 2
•Houston Alexander vs. Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson*
•Dennis Hallman vs. John Howard
•Brian Stann vs. Rodney Wallace
•Mark Bocek vs. Matt Veach

tough day today. First Thiago now Pellegrino.

Stevenson/Diaz are the only opponents that could make sense.
