Next Weekend: Two The Ultimate Fighter Finale eventsPosted on December 10, 2012, 04:11 PM by Anton Gurevich
Christmas is just around the corner, as MMA fans around the world are up for another action-packed weekend. This time it's a double TUF Finale-feature, with both Smashes and Nelson vs. Carwin seans coming to their conclusion.
TUF Smashes will be the first card to take place this weekend, headlined by the Lightweight scrap between team coaches George Storipoulos and Ross Pearson. Finale bouts Robert Wittaker vs. Brad Scott, and Colin Fletcher vs. Norman Parke will co-headline the card, which also includes the intriguing Middleweight scrap between Hector Lombard and Rousimar Palhares a.k.a. Paul Harris.
The event will be aired on FX at 9pm EST on Friday, December 14th.
Twenty-four hours after G-Sots and "The Real Deal" solve their differences inside the Octagon, Roy Nelson will go toe-to-toe with Matt Mitrione at TUF 16 Finale. This card takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will be also aired on FX at 9PM EST. Colton Smith vs. Mike Ricci is the co-main event, but it's also the only bouth involving TUF 16 fighters.
However, this card has some strong match-ups with Melvin Guillard vs. Jamie Varner, Pat Barry vs. Shane del Rosario, and Dustin Poirier vs. Jonathan Brookins. That's without a doubt one of the best FX cards this year.
