The UFC is on the cusp of crowning a new Ultimate Fighter with lightweights Michael Chiesa-Al Iaquinta each representing Urijah Faber’s squad from the latest season of the groundbreaking reality series. Chiesa is a wrestler by trade who has displayed incredible heart over the past few months, not only battling back in fights to emerge victorious but also dealing with the death of his father the night he earned his spot in the TUF 15 house. Meanwhile, Iaquinta was Faber’s top pick, packs power, and trains out of Matt Serra’s gym in New York.
Also set to scrap at tomorrow night’s TUF 15 Finale, welterweight contenders Martin Kampmann and Jake Ellenberger will mix it up in headlining action with TUF 13 winner Jonathan Brookins battling Brazilian sensation Charles Oliveira.
All of the competitors scheduled for action hit their weight-related marks meaning the event is officially official!
