TUF 18 Finale: Akira Corassani To Take On Maximo Blanco

An interesting featherweight contest has been added to the November Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale card, as Akira Corassani returns to face Maximo Blanco.

Set for November 30 from Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, the headline act will see UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson take on Joseph Benavidez.

Corassani (11-3) has won both of his UFC fights since a stint on The Ultimate Fighter 14. He defeated Robbie Peralta earlier this year in Sweden.

Blanco (9-4-1) has split his two matches inside the Octagon, defeating Sam Sicilia after falling to Marcus Brimage.
