“The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale” was held Saturday night inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A light heavyweight scrap between Stephan Bonnar and Igor Pokrajac was originally scheduled to headline the fight card. However, it was announced during Friday’s weigh-ins that the lightweights were bumped to the top billing.
The Ultimate Fighter 12 teammates Michael Johnson and Jonathan Brookins battled to become the Octagon’s newest star. The winner of the tournament was rewarded with a six-figure UFC contract and some trinkets.
