rony-jason.jpgA featherweight matchup between “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” winner Rony Jason (12-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” cast member Mike Wilkinson (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is reportedly in the works for UFC on FUEL TV 10.

SporTV first brought word of the matchup, though UFC officials haven’t made a formal announcement.

UFC on FUEL TV 10, which also serves as the finale of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2,” takes place June 8, likely at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. The main card airs on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook.

Jason brings a seven-fight win streak to the cage – a run that includes a UFC win over Godofredo Castro in the final bout of “TUF: Brazil,” as well as a TKO finish of “The Ultimate Fighter 15? cast member Sam Sicilia at this past October’s UFC 153 event. Jason, who turns 29 years old later this month, has competed exclusively in his home country thus far in his MMA career.

Meanwhile, Wilkinson fights for the second time under the UFC banner. An Englishman, Wilkinson was cast on “TUF: The Smashes” but was forced out of the contest with an injury before ever fighting on the show. The UFC still gave him a fight at this past December’s live finale, and Wilkinson rewarded them with a decision win over Brendan Loughnane.

With the reported addition, the UFC on FUEL TV 10 lineup now includes:

  • Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Fabricio Werdum
  • Rafael Cavalcante vs. Thiago Silva
  • John Hathaway vs. Erick Silva
  • Rony Jason vs. Mike Wilkinson*
  • Caio Magalhaes vs. Karlos Vemola*
  • Derek Brunson vs. Ronny Markes*
  • Ildemar Alcantara vs. Jason High*

* – Not officially announced
