After 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.
