After the season finale of “The Ultimate Fighter 9” airs tomorrow evening, fans will know the complete roster for the main bouts in this Saturday’s “TUF 9 Finale.” With just four days until game time, the UFC finally released a handful of match-ups slated for the preliminary bouts.

Lightweight Energizer Bunnies Diego Sanchez and Clay Guida will see who can outlast the other in the night’s featured bout. This will mark Sanchez’ second lightweight scrap inside the Octagon.

With a convincing W over the relentless Guida, coupled with his already-impressive resume, Sanchez could very well see himself in a title bout sooner rather than later.

You can catch all of the main bouts airing on Spike TV this Saturday beginning at 9PM ET/PT,  however you can’t watch the fights live unless you have access to an east coast feed.

Here are the fighters Rumored to be fighting inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada:

Jason Dent vs. Cameron Dollar
Brad Blackburn vs. Edgar Garcia
Mike Ciesnolevicz vs. Tomasz Drwal
Melvin Guillard vs. Gleison Tibau
