Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 finalists Anthony Ferguson vs Ramsey Nijem set for Finale on June 4

New, comments

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 has officially wrapped, which means we have two contestants left from an original field of 14 set to do battle for the coveted "six-figure contract" and reality show infamy.

Team Lesnar's Anthony Ferguson will try to overcome Ramsey Nijem of Team Dos Santos at the TUF 13 live finale on June 4, 2011, from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The action begins this Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET on Spike TV.

Ferguson (10-2) entered this season riding a three fight win streak, including a technical knockout victory over Brock Jardine at PureCombat 12: "Champions for Children" last September.

He matched that streak on the cable television network, defeating Justin Edwards in spectacular fashion via upkick knockout in episode six. He would move on to the semifinals and paste Ryan McGillivray at the 0:46 mark to earn a semifinal slot opposite Chuck O'Neil.

It took three rounds, but the outcome was still the same.

Now "The Boogeyman" must try to scare up one more win when he faces "Stripper Ramsey" on Saturday night at "The Pearl."

Like Ferguson, Ramsey entered this season having strung together three consecutive wins, including a rear-naked choke over Scott Casey at Showdown Fights: "Respect" back on Sept. 24, 2010.

He would use that same submission to deny "Superstar" Charlie Rader the chance to move on when they went to war on episode four.

Clay Harvison did his best to stay out of the choke on episode eight but was also submitted by Nijem, who could have went for the hat trick on episode nine but settled for a technical knockout victory over Chris Cope to earn his spot on Saturday night's telecast.

Two talented welterweights. One six-figure contract. Who takes home the prize and TUF bragging rights -- Ferguson or Nijem?
