It truly will be Team Dos Santos vs. Team Lesnar in the finals of the 13th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” when Ramsey Nijem meets Tony Ferguson this Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The welterweights will compete for a six-figure contract to fight in the UFC.
Nijem (4-1) makes his way to the finale after being one of the strongest and most well rounded fighters on the reality show. The fourth overall pick by coach Junior Dos Santos, Nijem went on to dominate his fights on the show. Nijem took out Charlie Rader, Clay Harvison, and finally Chris Cope to earn his spot in the finale.
Meanwhile, Tony Ferguson (10-2) was maybe the only fighter on the show to outshine Nijem with his performances. After ending up on Brock Lesnar’s squad, Ferguson dispatched of Justin Edwards, Ryan McGillivray, and Chuck O’Neil to get to the finale.
Nijem and Ferguson will square off in the co-main event of the TUF 13 finale show this Saturday night to determine who will be the next ‘Ultimate Fighter’.
