Mike Ricci and Colton Smith advanced to the finals of The Ultimate Fighter Friday night and will square off next week at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

Ricci, a selection by Shane Carwin, defeated Neil Magny via first round knockout to secure his spot in the finals. Ricci is the second Canadian fighter to make the finals of TUF, joining former contender Patrick Cote.

Smith, meanwhile, scored a decision victory over Jon Manley to advance. He represents Roy Nelson.

The two will be part of the main card, which also features Nelson facing Matt Mitrione.

TUF will move to Tuesday nights on FX in 2013, with Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen serving as coaches this January.
