After 12 weeks and three fights, Jesse Taylor and Dhiego Lima will collide for the glass trophy — and “Redemption” — in The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 25 Finale later tonight (Fri., July 7, 2017) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, live on FOX Sports 1.
What a long, strange trip it’s been.
Taylor (30-15) first cut his teeth on season seven of the combat sports reality show, but was bounced from the program after getting drunk and going on a “Sin City” rampage. Lima (12-5), on the other hand, made it to the welterweight finale on season 14, but was stopped by Gilbert Smith just short of the finish line.
Check out their fight video preview above.
