Chris Lytle vs. Kevin Burns set for TUF 9 Finale

The UFC has officially announced a welterweight match-up between Chris Lytle and Kevin Burns for the finale of the ninth season of The Ultimate Fighter.

The event is scheduled to take place on June 20 at The Pearl in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and will be airing live on Spike TV.

Lytle is a full-time firefighter and prize fighter that is a veteran of over 40 professional mixed martial arts bouts, over a dozen of which have been fought under the UFC banner. He was a veteran of the fourth season of The Ultimate Fighter and has earned fight of the night honors in his last two bouts for the UFC against Paul Taylor, and most recently, Marcus Davis, where Lytle wound up on the losing end of a hard fought split decision.

After going 5-1 as a professional, Burns made his UFC debut count, submitting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Roan Carneiro by triangle choke in the second round of their bout which took place at UFC 85. He followed up the impressive win over Carneiro with a highly controversial TKO victory over Anthony Johnson where Burns repeatedly poked Johnson in the eye until he was no longer able to continue before being knocked out by Johnson in their return match in his most recent bout.

A full list of the bouts expected for the card are listed below:

Lightweight finalist No. 1 vs. No. 2

Welterweight finalist No. 1 vs. No. 2

Clay Guida vs. Diego Sanchez

Nate Diaz vs. Joe Stevenson

Matt Brown vs. Anthony Johnson

    This looks to be a great card. The one to watch will be Sanchez and Guida. Nightmare will not let the Carpenter lay on him all night.

    GOOD LORD!
    They should save this card for the 4th of July, becuase there’s going to be some serious, SERIOUS fireworks…

    This card is looking better than a lot of their past payper view cards, and its for free. Thank you lord i cant wait to see it. These are going to be some explosive fights for sure, especially the Matt Brown and Johnson fight. I ecxpect the winner to be a rising contender on the WW division.
