Another successful season of the Ultimate Fighter is poised to wrap up tonight when TUF 15 finalists Michael Chiesa and Al Iaquinta lock horns in co-headlining action at the Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale. Both men earned their respective spots with impressive performances including a ton of heart on the part of Chiesa whose father passed away hours after he won his way into the show’s house.
The card also features a main event between Jake Ellenberger (27-5) and Martin Kampmann (19-5). Each is considered a top contender at 170 pounds, especially in the case of Ellenberger who has emerged victorious in six straight including triumphs over Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez. However, Kampmann cannot be overlooked given his consecutive wins against Rick Story-Thiago Alves as well as his fourteen career finishes.
As always, Fighters.com will be watching things go down as soon as the curtail drops on Facebook at 6:25 PM EST. The broadcast will head over to Fuel TV at 7:00 PM EST with a two-hour block of battles with the main card unfolding on FX at 9:00 PM EST.
