TUF 11: Jamie Yager vs Rich Attonito set for live finale on June 19

Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 lighting rod Jamie Yager isn't going away just yet.

The funky-haired fight monger is getting another chance at UFC fame as he tries to sneak in the back door against fellow TUF guy Rich Attonito during the live finale on Saturday, June 19 at 9 p.m. ET on Spike TV from "The Pearl" at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV.

Yager made some noise early in the season, kicking the "Hebrew Hammer" out of the competition (literally) to earn his spot in the TUF house. He followed that up with another impressive stoppage against Charles Blanchard in episode four, stopping the KOTC vet in just over a minute.

Unfortunately he was unable to capitalize on that momentum and failed to answer the bell in the third round of his episode ten fight against eventual semifinalist Josh Bryant.

The loss did little to stop his off-camera shenanigans, and now Team Liddell standout Rich Attonito is looking to make him pay for it.

Like Yager, Attonito was successful right out of the gate, outpointing Lyle Steffens to secure his spot on the roster. He would face Kyacey Uscola in the elimination rounds and win via disqualification (illegal knee), but was forced to withdraw from the competition after breaking his hand.

Now he's healed and ready to give it a second go round against one of this season's more recognizable names.

Also on tap for the TUF 11 Finale is a light heavyweight war featuring Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine as he inches his way back into the title hunt against Matt "The Hammer" Hamill.
