The UFC has announced that last season’s Ultimate Fighter winner, Tony Ferguson, will compete alongside the four finalists from TUF 14 on December 3 when he takes to the cage against Yves Edwards as part of the Ultimate Fighter Season 14 Finale.
The 27-year old Ferguson will be going for his sixth straight stoppage when he faces the vastly more-experienced Edwards including a pair of TKOs in his two post-show appearances. “El Cucuy” was last seen breaking Aaron Riley’s jaw in September at UFC 135 and subsequently forcing the ringside physician to call for the bout’s ending based on Riley’s inability to continue.
Edwards, who has 59 professional bouts in comparison to Ferguson’s fourteen, found success earlier this month by picking up a second stanza TKO over Rafaello Oliveira at UFC Live 6. The victory was his fourth in five fights and ninth inside the Octagon.
