    Mike Pyle says he's fighting James Head at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale

    Mike Pyle (23-8-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC) is back to work in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas.

    The welterweight today tweeted that he's set to fight James Head (9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale, which takes place Dec. 15 at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

    It's not yet clear whether Pyle vs. Head serves on the event's FX-televised main card or FUEL TV-televised prelims.

    James Head is coming off 2 pretty impressive wins. Papy, a good striker and Brian Ebersole, an alien that had not lost since 08 (to Lombard).

    I missed the Brian Ebersole fight, was it a decisive win? I really thought Eversole was close to being a contender. He took that fight less than a month after his last win?

    Yes, Ebersole took the fight on really short notice and looked REALLY flat, Head didn't look too great in it IMO coming out with the win, but Ebersole on any day is a tough out. As far as Abedi goes, I'm on the record saying he may look like Tarzan, but fights like Jane, so that win does nothing for Head in my eyes.

    He had trouble with Ring and I think Pyle gives him more of the same, Head's most impressive win was against Gerald Harris, who has been extremely inconsistent, so I really don't think too highly of him going into this fight.

    That said, I'm a huge Mike Pyle supporter and think he's an incredibly well rounded fighter, with endless tools at his disposal. I think he takes this fight wherever it happens to go.

    I thought for a second it was going to be James Toney. lol. Which brings me to this. Yet another boxing vs mma debate. This is the last one you'll ever have to listen to:
