Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is super excited about its middleweight headliner between Brad Tavares and Israel Adesanya, set for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 27 Finale on FOX Sports 1 inside Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Fri., July 6, 2018.
Why else would it go ALL CAPS?
Tavares (17-4) is the winner of four straight, including last April’s technical knockout win over Krzysztof Jotko at UFC on FOX 29. The Hawaiian has long been trying to finagle a fight with former champion Michael Bisping, to no avail.
Adesanya (13-0) kept his perfect record intact with a split-decision win over Marvin Vettori, which also took place at UFC on FOX 29. It was just the second fight for “The Last Stylebender” under the UFC banner.
TUF 27 Finale, held just one day before the coaches collide at UFC 226, will also feature a pair of women’s flyweight fights pitting Barb Honchak against Roxanne Modafferi, along with Montana De La Rosa opposite Rachael Ostovich.
