TUF 20 Finale gets Jeremy Stephens vs. Charles Oliveira co-main event on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added Jeremy Stephens vs. Charles Oliveira featherweight co-main event to The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 Finale scheduled for Dec. 12, 2014 inside "The Pearl" at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC officials announced the pending match up on Tuesday.

Stephens (23-10) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Cub Swanson in San Antonio, Texas, marking his first defeat as a featherweight. "Lil' Heathen" has a staggering 19 mixed martial arts (MMA) fights under the ZUFFA banner and is still just 28 years old.

Like Stephens, Oliveira (18-4, 1 NC) is a former lightweight trying to get something going as a 145-pounder. But unlike his TUF 20 opponent, "Do Bronx" was successful his last time out and has now recorded back-to-back submission victories dating back to summer 2013.

Who ya' got?

TUF 20 Finale on FOX Sports 1 will feature the two finalists in the women's strawweight division (more on that here), as well as a lightweight scrap pitting Yancy Medeiros vs. Joe Proctor. Expect more fight announcements to trickle in over the next few weeks.
