not sure if this has been posted but here it is, should be an interesting matchup! I think Hammill is an exciting fighter as is Jon Jones so im definitely looking forward to this fight. I'm also excited to see Frankie Edgar and Rousimar Palhares back in the octagon!

The long-rumored light heavyweight contest between Matt Hamill (7-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) and Jon Jones (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) is now official.
The UFC officially announced the contest overnight, and the fast-rising prospects will meet at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale.
The Hamill vs. Jones bout is the sole official contest for the Dec. 5 card at The Palms Casino & Resort. Tickets for the event go on sale later this week.
Jones looks to continue his meteoric rise up the ranks of the UFC's 205-pound division. The undefeated youngster, just 22 years old, has earned wins over Jake O'Brien, Stephan Bonnar and Andre Gusmao in his first three octagon bouts.
Meanwhile, Hamill, a former cast member of "The Ultimate Fighter 3," will be looking to build on the strength of two-straight wins. Back-to-back impressive victories over Mark Munoz and Reese Andy have garnered the 32-year-old some well-deserved buzz, putting behind the sting of a September 2008 loss to Rich Franklin.
The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 17 at 3 p.m. EST (12 p.m. PST). However, UFC.com newsletter subscribers can purchase tickets beginning at 1 p.m. EST on Oct. 16, and UFC Fight Club members can buy tickets starting Oct. 15 at 1 p.m. EST.
