Brookins vs. Oliveira Set For "The Ultimate Fighter Live" Finale
By Drew Graham:
TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins has verbally agreed to face 3-time Submission Of The Night Winner Charles Oliveira in a featherweight contest at the TUF Live Finale on June 1 in Las Vegas. Brookins (2-1 UFC) is coming off a KO win over Vagner Rocha, while Oliveira (3-2-1 NC UFC) is coming off a submission win via the first ever UFC “calf slicer” on Eric Wisely.
Other bouts announced for the card include Max Holloway against Pat Schilling, and John Albert against Byron Bloodworth. Holloway hopes to bounce back from his only career loss that was to the hands of up-and comer Dustin Poirier. Schilling is looking for a win after being defeated in his UFC debut to Daniel Pineda. TUF alumni John Albert is looking to rebound after losing to Ivan Menjivar via rear naked choke in a wild first round battle. Bloodworth is coming off a loss to Mike Easton.
