Featherweight Finalists Set for TUF 14 Showdown

November 30, 2011

Diego Brandao

The Ultimate Fighter season 14 featherweight final will pit one of the show’s fiercest competitors in Diego Brandao against Dennis Bermudez.

As intense a fighter as there has ever been on the reality show, Brazilian born Diego Brandao let his intentions be known the day he stepped in the TUF house.

He was there to win and destroy whoever got in his way… He did not disappoint.

Brandao crushed Jesse Newell, Steven Siler, and Bryan Caraway, all with first-round stoppages to earn his way to the finale.

While Brandao is a devastating fighter, he’s also disciplined because he trains with one of the best camps in the world under the tutelage of Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn.

Hoping to derail Brandao’s trail of destruction will be former college wrestler Dennis Bermudez.

Bermudez was one of the quieter fighers on the show, just putting on workmanlike performances and earning his way to the finale. To get there Bermudez defeated Jimmie Rivera, Stephen Bass, and Akira Corassani, and will now represent Team Mayem in the finals as he tries to set the tone for his coach who fights later that night.

The featherweights will battle in another Team Bisping vs. Team Mayhem contest as the 145-pound Ultimate Fighter title is up for grabs.
