Noke-kimmons_medium

Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 contestant Kyle Noke (17-4-1) will return to the Spike TV airwaves when he travels abroad to face Rob Kimmons(23-5) at UFC 122 on Nov. 13 from the Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany, according to MMAWeekly.

Despite getting sent home by eventual finalist Kris McCray, Noke redeemed his stint on the Spike TV reality show with an impressive technical knockout over fellow contestant Josh Bryant during the show's live finale back on June 19.

In addition to his first Octagon win, "KO" is battle-tested, having thrown hands with some of the sport's top names like Scott Smith, Hector Lombard and George Sotiropoulos.

A win over the experienced Kimmons could help him get into the title race sooner rather than later.

Like Noke, "The Rosedale Reaper"is no stranger to combat.

The biggest knock on the grappling stud is his inconsistency inside the Octagon. Kimmons is 3-2 since his 2008 debut with wins over Steve Steinbeiss, Joe Vedepo and Rob Yundt, but has been unable to post back-to-back victories as a Zuffa employee.

Stopping Noke would certainly fix that issue, as well as lead him to bigger and better opportunities.

Headlined by Vitor Belfort vs. Yushin Okami, UFC 122 is expected to feature a bevy of German born fighters -- though no official match-ups have been announced at this time. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more information on this still developing fight card.
