George Roop vs Dustin Kimura Bantamweight match set for TUF: 'Nations' Finale on April 16 in Quebec City

George Roop - Joshua Lindsey-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced a new addition to its April 16, 2014 The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Nations" Finale -- set to go down at Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City, Canada.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added a bantamweight pairing of Dustin Kimura vs. George Roop to The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Nations" Finale, which takes place on April 16, 2014, inside Colisee Pepsi Centre in Quebec City, Canada, on FOX Sports 1.

UFC officials announced the booking earlier this week.

A win would continue to push Kimura (11-1) towards the top of the 135-pound division. The 24-year-old Hawaiian is coming off a submission victory against Jon delos Reyes at UFC Fight Night 34 and is looking to push his record under ZUFFA's banner to 3-1.

The submission specialist will have his hands full when he takes on the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) veteran who hasn't fought since November of 2013.

Roop (14-10) has been in the mixed martial arts (MMA) game since 2006. His bout against Kimura will be his third fight that has taken place on a TUF Finale card and will be his first scrap since losing to Francisco Rivera at UFC Fight Night 31.

I get the feeling Roop is fighting for his UFC career in April, as his record inside the Octagon has dropped to 4-7.

TUF: "Nations" finale will be headlined by the Michael Bisping vs. Tim Kennedy grudge match, as well as the co-headliner between season coaches Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke. In addition, tournament champions will be crowned in the welterweight and middleweight divisions.
