Six Bouts Announced for The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will Be Crowned Finale

On Wednesday evening, The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced six match-ups that will be featured on the Dec. 12 The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale fight card at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

Joanne Calderwood, the No. 2 seed from the reality show, faces the first South Korean woman to compete in the UFC, Seohee Ham.

TUF-20-belt-750Tecia “Tiny Tornado” Torres hopes to bounce back from losing twice during the strawweight tournament and keep her official unbeaten record intact when she takes on fellow TUF 20 contestant Angela Magana.

Popular Aussie fighter “Rowdy” Bec Rawlings will make her Octagon debut against Heather Jo Clark in a bit of a grudge match. To say the two didn’t get along during the filming of TUF 20 would be an understatement.

In what has developed into a heated rivalry, Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig will take on Lisa Ellis.

Adding some international flare, Team Pettis teammates, Australia’s Alex Chambers faces Ireland’s Aisling Daly.

The opening bout on UFC Fight Pass pits Team Melendez’ Angela Hill and Emily Peters Kagan.

Two more bouts will be added to the card and the first will feature the winners of the upcoming semifinal matches: Randa Markos vs. Rose Namajunas and Carla Esparza vs. Jessica Penne.

The winners will fight in the five-round main event for the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight title. The other fight will be a preliminary card matchup between the losing competitors from the Markos-Namajunas and Esparza-Penne bouts.
