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.
