An intriguing lightweight shootout between K.J. Noons (pictured) and Daron Cruickshank has been added to “The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale” lineup.

UFC officials confirmed the tango late Thursday night.

Noons will be riding a two-fight winning streak into the bout. The former boxer took a decision over George Sotiropoulos at UFC 166 before posting April’s 30-second knockout against Sam Stout.

Cruickshank is victorious in three of his past four outings. He rebounded from a decision defeat to Jorge Masvidal by outpointing Anthony Njokuani last Saturday in Canada.

Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the December 12 event.
