Eliminated contestants from this season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Ben Saunders (4-0-2) and Dan Barrera (0-0), will get to fight a third round after all -- a rematch is scheduled for the TUF 6 Finale at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to FiveOuncesofPain.com.
The two first met in a two-round exhibition match on the show with Saunders earning a majority decision from the judges. It was a result that UFC President Dana White dubbed at the time one of the "worst decisions he's ever seen."

According to the report this bout will more than likely find its way onto the televised portion of the FREE SpikeTV special that begins at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 8. That's probably because it was perhaps among the most exciting scraps in the 11 episodes that have aired this season.
Saunders was eliminated last night, losing a unanimous decision to Tommy Speer in the quarterfinals. Steve Cofield actually caught up with him and he explains that he was incredibly ill during the bout.
In fact, Saunders says the episode the show "didn't even come close to showing how sick he really was." Not to mention his nose was still broken from the Barrera fight.
