The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale is beginning to cement some matches. The Live Finale card has added another match to the June 1st card.

Former Chute Boxe coach Cristiano Marcello will take on Sam Sicilia on the season finale show in Las Vegas. The announcement was confirmed by Marcello’s manager via twitter on Wednesday.

Marcello was beaten in his first fight after making it into the ultimate fighter house, where he was taken down by TKO via the hands of Team Cruz top pick, Justin Lawrence. Fortunately, the BJJ black belt will get another shot to fight in the UFC on June 1st.

At 10-0 heading into the show, Sam Sicilia had one of the most impressive records early on and was looking to advance after being Team Cruz’s second overall pick. Sicilia was later beaten by a tough and very versatile Chris Saunders. He lost a very close decision but is getting another chance verse Marcello.

Jake Ellenberger will battle Martin Kampmann in a scheduled five round battle main event.
