Report: Rony Jason fights Mike Wilkinson at UFC on Fuel 10

Matt Roberts

TUF: The Smashes lightweight Mike Wilkinson is dropping to featherweight to fight TUF Brazil winner Rony Jason at UFC on Fuel 10 in Brazil.

Rony Jason will once again be fighting in front of his home fans. The FW champion of TUF: Brazil will be on the finale of the 2nd TUF Brazil finale, as he fights TUF: The Smashes alum Mike Wilkinson. SporTV initially reported this bout, but the UFC has not yet made it official.

Jason (12-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) took the TUF: Brazil crown when he defeated Godofredo Pepey by decision at UFC 147. His first post-TUF fight came last October at UFC 153 against TUF 15's Sam Sicilia, with Jason winning by 2nd round TKO.

Wilkinson (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) won his opening fight on TUF: The Smashes, but an injury forced him off the show. The UFC still offered him a spot on the show's finale (UFC on FX 6), and he earned his roster spot with a unanimous decision win over Brendan Loughnane. He is now dropping to featherweight to face Jason.

UFC on Fuel 10 (AKA TUF Brazil 2 Finale) is on June 8th in Fortaleza, Brazil. Season 2 coaches Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum headline the card.
