TUF 17 Finale was expected feature a main event between Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and top 125-pound contender John Moraga; however, that bout was scrapped when "Mighty Mouse" went down with an untimely injury. Stepping in for them will be Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen, as they battle to stay afloat in the 135-pound contender "mix."
The two 185-pound finalists from the latest season of TUF on FX between Team Jon Jones vs. Team Chael Sonnen will also be featured on the main card, looking to etch their names in mixed martial arts (MMA) "reality" television history and staking claim to a "six-figure" UFC contract.
In addition, the second-ever women's UFC Bantamweight bout between Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano, as well as a Heavyweight contest that pits Travis Browne against Gabriel Gonzaga, are also scheduled for the "Sin City" fight card.
