Joe Rogan Breaks Down Saturday's Hamill vs. Jones

The UFC's ringside commentator Joe Rogan breaks-down Jon "Bones" Jones vs. Matt "The Hammer" Hamill, alongside an awesome highlight package, in a video available on SpikeTV.com. Find the video: RIGHT HERE.

That fight will be the co-main event at this Saturday's "The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale." Keep in mind that the participants in the main event, a showdown for the coveted UFC contract, along with several other filler fights featuring T.U.F. 10 cast members, will be announced following T.U.F. 10's season finale. That two-hour, four-fight, face-bashing bonanza airs this Wednesday (Dec 2nd) at 6:00pm on Spike.

What we know already is that the co-main event fight is a real doozie. Jon Jones (9-0) is easily among MMA's most highly regarded prospects with a flashy style that nearly defies physics. The undefeated Jones has already spinning-elbowed and suplexed his way through three UFC opponents. Now he'll meet his stiffest test to date in the reliable and ever-improving Matt Hamill (7-2), an insanely strong wrestler with a growing penchant for nasty knock-outs. A win here marks either fighter as a certified bad-ass and a legit light heavyweight title contender.

Saturday`s T.U.F. 10 Finale card also features the official UFC debut of Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson (3-1) who will square off against Houston "The Nebraskan Assassin"Alexander. The two share a similar approach to MMA-- they generally swing wildly for the fences until somebody in the cage loses consciousness. Unsurprisingly, both fighters have reaped mixed result from their brawl-first-ask-questions-later style.

So far, the announced card looks like this, but, again, more matches will be added by this Thursday morning. Expect a breakdown and predictions before the fights, right here on BCMMAFan:
