It was just announced on UFC Tonight that Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn will fight a third time after coaching the next season of the Ulimate Fighter opposite one another.
The fight will be contested at 145 lbs, which will be Penn’s first trip to featherweight after getting brutalized by Nick Diaz and Rory MacDonald at welterweight. Edgar has only competed a single time at 145 lbs, and the season was originally being planned to have Urijah Faber vs. Edgar, but Edgar was unwilling to drop another weight class to face off with Faber.
TUF 19 airs in April 2014 on Fox Sports 1, which will feature light-heavyweights and heavyweights.
