The third meeting between Gray Maynard and Nate Diaz will take place this November at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale.

The bout is set for November 30 from Las Vegas and the Mandalay Bay Events Center. So far, it is the only match announced for the card other than the obvious Ultimate Fighter finales.

Diaz (16-9) will be looking to bounce back from a pair of losses to then-UFC champion Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson. He is a former TUF winner, defeating Maynard when both were on the reality series in the semifinals.

After the loss, Diaz was suspended for comments made on his Twitter page for 20 days and fined.

Maynard (11-2-1) is also looking to get back on track after a loss to TJ Grant. He has gone 2-2-1 in his last five fights. “The Bully” earned a win in the rematch with Diaz in 2010.
