Jardine vs. Hamill on 'Ultimate Finale'

Matt Hamill returns to the site of his last "victory," which is also the site of a devastating pummeling at the hands of Jon Jones.

Hamill won that fight after Steve Mazzagatti disqualified Jones for a 12-6 elbow. Of course, he probably should have stopped the fighter earlier as Jones was unloading on Hamill.

But Hamill (9-2) returns to fight Keith Jardine (above, losing to Rampage) in the main event of The Ultimate Finale for Season 11 of "The Ultimate Fighter."

The fight is June 19 at The Palms in Las Vegas and airs at 9 p.m. on Spike. It's hard to get excited about Jardine (14-8-1), loser of three straight fights and five of his last seven. Sure, he still has an awkward fighting style, but it appears fighters are starting to figure it out. It's going to take a miracle from trainer Greg Jackson to restore Jardine to a legitimate contender in the light heavyweight division.
