The UFC has booked a lightweight bout between “TUF” season 12 winner, Tony Ferguson and long time MMA Veteran Yves Edwards for the upcoming Dec. 3 event.
“The Ultimate Fighter” season 14 finale is set to take place from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Headlining the event will be coaches Michael Bisping and Jason Miller. Both the yet to be determined bantamweight and featherweight finalists will also square off to determine the shows champions.
Ferguson was introduced to the UFC audience as the winner of “The Ultimate Fighter” season 12. After winning the shows final he entered deep waters as a lightweight when the UFC booked him against Aaron Riley at UFC 135. Ferguson was able to extend his win-streak to five with a doctor stoppage TKO victory over his opponent due to a broken jaw suffered in the first round.
Edwards is a long time MMA veteran. After 14-years of professional competition he was last seen taking out Rafaello Oliveira in round two of their UFC on Versus 6 bout. The win improved his record by one and out of his last five fights; the crafty ATT fighter has only dropped one bout via KO at the hands of Sam Stout back at UFC 131.
