TUF 18 Finale Gains One Flyweight Contest

Before announcing which cast members from The Ultimate Fighter 18 will receive a match at the finale, UFC officials added two new flyweights.

Ryan Benoit will face Josh Sampo next Saturday at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale from Las Vegas. The main event features lightweights Gray Maynard and Nate Diaz.

Benoit (7-2) most recently competed in Legacy Fighting Championship where he went 4-0. Sampo (10-2) is on a four-fight win streak himself and fought for Championship Fighting Alliance before signing with the UFC.

Officials are expected to announce a slew of fights between those who did not make the finals in the coming days.
