The full fight card has been set for Saturday’s live finale of The Ultimate Fighter 17.
Following the semi-final results on Tuesday’s episode, Uriah Hall will meet Kelvin Gastelum in the co-main event of the show at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas to determine who will take home the title of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
Semi-final losers Josh Samman and Dylan Andrews will also appear on the card, taking on fellow TUF 17 competitors Kevin Casey and Jimmy Quinlan, respectively.
Two other matchups of cast members this season will see Robert (Bubba) McDaniel take on Gilbert Smith, Jr., on the main card and Luke Barnatt face Collin Hart on the undercard, while Team Jones’ Clint Hester will also be in competition in a bout against Strikeforce import Bristol Marunde.
The event is headlined by a potential bantamweight title eliminator bout between former WEC champion Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen. It also features a women’s bantamweight bout between Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano, which will determine who will coach opposite UFC champion (Rowdy) Ronda Rousey on the next edition of The Ultimate Fighter, as well as who will challenge Rousey next for her belt.
