UFC The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 Finale: Mac Danzig vs. Tommy Speer

It's a Team Hughes 170-pound showdown between Mac Danzig (16-4) and Tommy Speer (9-1) at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 Finale on Saturday, December 8 at The Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Both fighters survived the 16-man tournament style competition and beat the odds -- Danzig and Speer were the only two from their team to reach the quarterfinals.

Speer perhaps pulled off the upset of the season, knocking out early favorite George Sotiropoulis in the semifinals in devastating fashion. Danzig, meanwhile, rematched John Kolosci in the other half of the bracket and met with similar results -- win via submission (rear naked choke) in round one.

Kolosci stepped up to replace Matt Arroyo who pulled himself out of the competition because of injured ribs.

This should be an interesting fight because Danzig is on the smaller side of 170 (he could most likely compete at 155) and Speer is big for a welterweight. On the other hand, Danzig has a world of experience under his belt with fights in major organizations such as Pride FC.

TUF 6 Finale is set to air this weekend at 9 p.m. on SpikeTV for free. It features the co-main event between lightweight contenders Roger Huerta and Clay Guida. Other contestants on this season of TUF are also booked to throwdown.
