Spike TV today confirmed that the long-rumored rematch between Anthony Johnson (5-2) and Kevin Burns (7-1) will indeed take place at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 Finale at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 13.
In addition, the network made official that Wilson Gouveia (11–5) and Jason MacDonald (21–10) will throwdown in a middleweight bout on the televised main card, which will serve as the co-featured fight of the broadcast.
Of course, the finals of the lightweight and light heavyweight tournament-style format that is currently in progress on the mixed martial arts reality series will also take place at the TUF 8 Finale.
All the action will begin to air live on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET on fight night.
With the series nearing its conclusion (the semifinal match ups finalized tonight), we should learn more about the remaining fight card, which will likely include several eliminated participants on the show.
