'TUF 8' assistant coach James Horne to fight MMA

James Horne, who served as the assistant coach for Team Mir on season eight of "The Ultimate Fighter," is scheduled to make his amateur MMA debut on Jan. 9, 2009 in Las Vegas.

Horne will face Abe Salazar in a heavyweight bout at a TUFF-N-UFF event, the same amateur promotion Xtreme Couture head grappling instructor Robert Drysdale made his MMA debut with.

Horne, the first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Frank Mir, is also the former UFC heavyweight champ's main grappling partner.
