Marcus JonesAfter learning yesterday of the first cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 10, backyard brawler-turned-mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice, MMAjunkie has confirmed that four NFL veterans have been cast for the heavyweights-only season.

Added to the cast were Marcus Jones (4-1), Matt Mitrione (0-0), Brendan Schaub (4-0) and Wes Shivers (0-1). A fifth former player, Rex Richards, was also reportedly tapped for the show, which began taping on Monday, but recently suffered a partial MCL tear that forced him to withdraw from the competition.

The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights, which features light heavyweight contenders Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans as coaches, will debut on September 16 following UFC Fight Night 19 on Spike TV.

Stay tuned to for the latest Ultimate Fighter news, as we’ll pass along more cast members and other news and notes as it becomes available.
