Penn and Edgar to Meet Again

The TUF 19 coaches are announced...
Two former UFC champions with a history between them will meet again - both as coaches and combatants - as UFC Tonight announced Wednesday that former two-division titleholder BJ Penn and former lightweight boss Frankie Edgar will coach season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter, which begins taping later this year.

Following their stint on the show, Edgar, who owns two wins over "The Prodigy" in the lightweight division, will take on Penn in a 2014 battle in a new weight class - the 145-pound featherweight division.
