With the semifinalists almost set for season six of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), the UFC made four more bouts official for the TUF 6 Finale on December 8 from The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here are the welterweight match ups:
- Jared Rollins (5-3) vs. John "War Machine" Koppenhaver (4-1)
- Troy "Rude Boy" Mandaloniz (2-1) vs. Richie Hightower (7-1)
- Roman Mitichyan (3-1) vs. Dorian Price (7-2)
- Paul Georgieff (5-1) vs. Jonathan Goulet (19-9)
Interesting (and good) to see Mitichyan on the card -- he was sent home on the first episode because of a broken elbow sustained during training. It made for some great television but it also revealed how badly he wanted a chance to compete inside the Octagon.
Now he's got the opportunity to demonstrate his skills in front of a nationwide television audience on the SpikeTV special.
Surprised to see that Goulet is getting another bite at the UFC apple so soon after yet another loss his last time out against Dustin Hazelett at UFC Fight Night 11 back in September. The "Road Warrior" boasts an underwhelming record (2-3) within the eight-sided cage. He should be the favorite against the relatively inexperienced Georgieff (He got knocked out in the first round by "Rude Boy" in episode five).
Remember, lightweights Roger Huerta and Clay Guida will clash during the main event of the evening, and the two remaining finalists will throwdown to see who becomes the next TUF champion. Stay tuned for more updates and fight announcements regarding this upcoming event.
