According to most fans inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena this past weekend, “UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill” wasn’t the most spectacular Octagon show the company has ever hosted. Thankfully, “The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale” will be jumping off this Saturday to try and make amends.
The freebie fight card takes place inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. A critical lightweight scrap between Clay Guida and Anthony Pettis will headline the event.
In addition, one welterweight will be crowned the winner of “The Ultimate Fighter 13” and take home the highly coveted six-figure UFC contract.
Ramsey Nijem vs. Chris Cope and Tony Ferguson vs. Chuck O’Neil will determine who advances to the finals this Wednesday on the season finale of TUF 13.
Spike TV will broadcast Saturday’s main bouts live beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
Here are the athletes slated to fight this weekend:
Reuben Duran vs. Francisco Rivera
Scott Jorgensen vs. Ken Stone
Josh Grispi vs. George Roop
Tim Credeur vs. Ed Herman
Kyle Kingsbury vs. Fabio Malonado
Danny Downes vs. Jeremy Stephens
