“The Ultimate Fighter 26” Finale went down tonight (Friday, December 1, 2017) from the Park Theater in Paradise, Nevada. The show was headlined by the inaugural women’s flyweight title fight between finalist Nicco Montano and late replacement fill-in and semifinalist Roxanne Modafferi. Montano took a back-and-forth, gritty battle by unanimous decision on the strength of her superiority in the scrambles to become the new champion. She beat Lauren Murphy, Montana Stewart, Barb Honchak, and Roxanne Modafferi – arguably the best four other women in the bracket – to get it done.

The co-main event saw veteran boxer Terrion Ware welcome “Dana White‘s Tuesday Night Contender Series” alum Sean O’Malley to the big show. The pair engaged in an entertaining brawl, but O’Malley’s power, output, and diversity carried him through a tough second round to ean a unanimous nod from the judges.
