Diego Sanchez (18-2) and Luigi Fioravanti (12-3) will face off in a welterweight showdown at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 Finale on June 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to AmericanTopTeam.com.
This latest news confirms a Sherdog.com report last week that also revealed that the match up will headline the SpikeTV special.
Sanchez recently snapped a two-fight losing streak, defeating David Bielkheden via submission (verbal) in the first round at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" earlier this month. He was the middleweight winner of the inaugural TUF series, meaning that he'll be around to watch the latest 185-pound contestant on the show to get crowned.
Fioravanti -- a military serviceman-turned mixed martial artist -- also got back in the win column with a unanimous decision victory over Luke Cummo at UFC 82. The former middleweight had dropped his two previous fights inside the Octagon to Forrest Petz and Jon Fitch, respectively.
The win over Cummo evened his UFC record (3-3) and apparently earned him a shot against a very noteworthy opponent in front of a nationwide audience.
That's a big opportunity.
Fioravanti's best chance of winning this fight will be on the feet -- a place Diego more than likely look to avoid as soon as possible. Look for Diego to attempt the takedowns and pound out the ATT-trained fighter as quickly as possible.
Stay tuned for more details.
