UFC sets TUF 17 Finale lineup with season wrapped

TUF-17-Finale-posterWhen last night’s episode of the Ultimate Fighter 17 faded out fans knew Uriah Hall-Kelvin Gastelum were set to collide for the season’s championship. However, the specific fates of the remaining competitors weren’t quite so certain beyond UFC President Dana White promising the entire group had been signed to deals.

The UFC has since unveiled the complete card for the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale and, as expected, the bulk of the lineup is comprised of cast-members. The majority of the fights will occur on the evening’s Fuel TV undercard with the exception of a match-up between Bubba McDaniels (20-6) and Gilbert Smith (6-1).

The only TUF 17 fighters not involved at the show are Tor Troeng, Adam Cella, and Zak Cummings. Troeng-Cella faced off last weekend at UFC on Fuel 9 where the Swedish star choked his opponent out in the opening round of action. Meanwhile, MMAJunkie has reported Cummings was injured leading up to the event.

Read below for a complete list of TUF 17 Finale fights:

Justin Lawrence vs. Daniel Pineda
Sam Sicilia vs. Maximo Blanco
Cole Miller vs. Bart Palaszewski
Clint Hester vs. Bristol Marunde
Dylan Andrews vs. Jimmy Quinlan
Luke Barnatt vs. Collin Hart
Josh Samman vs. Kevin Casey
Bubba McDaniel vs. Gilbert Smith
Travis Browne vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano
Uriah Hall vs. Kelvin Gastelum
Urijah Faber vs. Scott Jorgensen

    I dont see why these guys are not fighting on the same card as the coaches on ppv. If bendo and all the fox titles are free why not sonnen vs jones? I might understand jones being a ppv for sure but sonnen vs anyone should be free. His all talk no title is getting old. I think a merge between tuf fanale and jones vs sonnen would be worth ppv expenses but the card as is ill whatch the highlights on fuel tv and save my $.
