The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced on Tuesday that featherweights Jeremy Stephens and Charles Oliveira will face off in The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale co-main event on Dec. 12 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
Stephens (23-10) dropped down from the lightweight division to the 145-pound weight class in 2013 and strung together three consecutive wins before losing by unanimous decision to Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 44 in June. The hard-hitting 28-year-old hopes to get back to his winning ways against Oliveira.
Oliveira (18-4, 1 NC) rebounded from a tough 2013 with back-to-back Performance of the Night award winning submissions. The Brazilian is currently on a two-fight winning streak and hopes to extend that to three on Dec. 12.
The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale takes place on Dec. 12 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The event will feature the finals of the women’s strawweight tournament to crown the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight champion.
