Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

New Additions to TUF 11 Finale Card Include Bryant vs. Noke, Tavares vs. Baczynski

You already know that Court McGee vs. Kris McCray will be the co-headliner at next Saturday’s TUF 11 Finale show (Spike TV, 9 p.m. ET/PT), and we also told you that Rich Attonito won the "who gets to kick Jamie Yager‘s ass" sweepstakes. So who else will join them at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas? Spike has confirmed the following bouts for the event…

Josh Bryant vs. Kyle Noke: No, Bryant won’t be facing off with fellow semi-finalist Brad Tavares in a third-place match. Instead, he has drawn Kyle Noke, the Australian veteran who was upset by Kris McCray in the TUF 11 quarterfinals.

Brad Tavares vs. Seth Baczynski: You see what they did there? Tavares and Baczynski get to have a rematch after their quarterfinal match ended abruptly via soccer kick disqualification.

Chris Camozzi vs. James Hammortree: You’ll have to go back to the beginning of the season to remember who Chris Camozzi is. He was the dude who smashed Victor O’Donnell in the elimination round, then dropped out of the competition due to a fractured jaw, which allowed Baczynski to return. Hammortree compiled a 1-2 record on the show, stopping Norman Paraisy in the elimination round, then losing back-to-back fights to Brad Tavares and Court McGee.

More fights could potentially be added by next week, but at this point, it looks like the only round-of-14′ers who didn’t get spots on the finale show are Joseph Henle, Nick Ring, Charles Blanchard, Clayton McKinney, and somewhat surprisingly, Kyacey Uscola. The current TUF 11 Finale lineup is below.

Keith Jardine vs. Matt Hamill (This is a headliner? Don’t get me started…)
Court McGee vs. Kris McCray
Aaron Simpson vs. Chris Leben
Spencer Fisher vs. Dennis Siver
Jamie Yager vs. Rich Attonito (According to, this one is indeed on the main card. More proof that being a big-haired loudmouth is always in your best interest. Notice that neither semi-finalist is guaranteed airtime.)

John Gunderson vs. Mark Holst
James McSweeney vs. Travis Browne
Josh Bryant vs. Kyle Noke
Brad Tavares vs. Seth Baczynski
Chris Camozzi vs. James Hammortree

feh on you Yager hater.
Ballkick- June 11, 2010 at 9:27 am
As a Muay Thai Instructor I like Yeagers kicking skills, that said, after training MMA fighters for the past 3 years I have resigned myself to the fact that high kicks if not thrown at the right time in a MMA fight is a sure way to be taken to the mat. All Rich needs to do is train his defense to come forward as the kick is coming and take "Sideshow Bob" to the mat. Yeagers ground game is horrendous. I Don't like the lack of character Yeager showed during the TUF 11 show and hope he gets his ass handed to him.
As to "Why" he's there in the main portion of the show,.....he said it himself,..."A closed mouth don"t get fed." He definitely opened his mouth enough to get fed.
Not to mention that now that Tito is out,.. the UFC needed a new "HEEL" for the fans to hate. Dana and the UFC are just taking a page out of the WWE playbook......SAD :-(

BTW am I the only one who noticed the resemblance between Yeager and "Sideshow Bob?"
dranokills- June 10, 2010 at 7:24 pm
fuck it I am Yager fan, regardless of what he did, and how much people hated him, I see potential.
If he got in a good camp that taught him control, and cardio, hes going to kill rich. And I hope he does.

@ fatbelly

I agree. Everyone should just sit back, watch, and enjoy a free night of fights! All of these fights have the potential to be brawls aka exciting KO's!!! Although, I would have liked to have seen Josh Bryant Vs. Noke. Bryant was my guy on the show, a hell of a fighter.
fatbellyfrank- June 10, 2010 at 5:06 pm
@ Lysol, relevant schmelevant, its basically an exhibition card, they've thrown in a couple of recognised names who people will hopefully tune into watch for free, never know, might even convert a couple of casual fans into PPV buyers
fatbellyfrank- June 10, 2010 at 4:58 pm
@Kid Dinomite "Anyway, this main event sucks. Having to watch two UFC scrubs compete for what?" Mate, its free, and you dont "have " to watch anything, wash your car, mow the lawn, whatever, but its fucken free man, I'm gonna be glued to the TV with an esky of frosty adult beverages to sustain me, and i quite like the idea of Jardine v Hammil it should be an entertaining scrap.
Lysol- June 10, 2010 at 4:50 pm
...And exactly how is the main event even somewhat relevant to the LHW division?
Mr_Misanthropy- June 10, 2010 at 4:43 pm
I think it'll be an entertaining free card. It has the appeal of a carnival sideshow, a complete gallery of freaks and weirdos. It's like a Special Olympics themed UFC, what more could you ask for (midgets)? It has the same visceral appeal as Japanese bug fights. They should host it in a circus tent in the middle of the desert in Sonora, Mexico and have it be sponsored by Coca Cola and La Migra.

Idk about the Kimbo v. Alexander fight being the worst ever. For my money that title will always belong to Gabe Gonzaga v. Kevin Jordon. I don't even know if it is as bad as I remember but all I can remember from the whole fight is one punch from Gonzaga.
Mdot50- June 10, 2010 at 4:20 pm
I liked uscola as a fighter, thought he under achieved but wanted to see him or hammertree fuck yagers lying, arrogant , hypocritical ass up.
PortlandMMA- June 10, 2010 at 3:58 pm
@ Angry Whopper the TUF 10 finale wasn't that bad the 12-6 elbow part of Jones murdering Hamill was fun to watch and Frankie Edgar was on the card. Also I think Schaub fought Nelson and Meathead fought Big Baby.

I will agree with you though that Kimbo vs Houston Alexander was possibly the worst fight I've ever seen. I think Jose Conseco was sitting home talking shit about it.
Angry Whopper- June 10, 2010 at 3:28 pm
Also, Uscola had the most fights for sure. He also had the most losses in his career as a fighter, and on the show. His W/L ratio is less than 50%, which doesn't help one get into the UFC. All this to say I am not surprised at all that he's not on the finale.
Angry Whopper- June 10, 2010 at 3:27 pm
No matter what happens with this finale card, it cannot be worse than TUF 10's finale with Fat Ass Nelson and Meathead, not to mention Kimbo vs Houston Alexander, where neither one bothered to fight at all. Anf how about Big Baby against Schaub the Knob? This disappointments abounded with that sideshow of a broadcast, and you gotta know that this post would be roflmao funny if Mr_Piss_in_the_Trophy or El Guapo had written it.
Shatski- June 10, 2010 at 3:10 pm
I agree that it's weird that none of the guys that had a problem with Yager are the ones that get the fight, but on the other hand it's good that Rich gets another shot. Same with Camozzi, too. Really thought they'd go with Uscola for Yager since it seems like they were doing their damndest to build that up as far as what made it to air.

Now that I think about it, if you shaved Yager's head, he'd look like the bastard child of Ernest "The Cat" Miller. That would also explain the wild kick. Somebody call his momma! For confirmation of parentage, I mean.

KidDinomite- June 10, 2010 at 2:56 pm

Oh wait, wrong message board....

Anyway, this main event sucks. Having to watch two UFC scrubs compete for what? Their jobs? Honestly, I think Hammill has this as Jardine has a penchant for telegraphing everything he does. It's a wonder Greg Jackson allows him to be on his team.

They should have made the main even Roy Nelson vs. Junior Dos Santos instead of sticking them on the main card of a PPV in order to save this finale.
Almost North- June 10, 2010 at 2:33 pm
Oh and what bullshit thing will happen in this Hamill fight? Terrible decision? Disqulification? The ref hitting him with a steel chair when he isn't looking?

For some reason this guy's fights go all WWE.
PortlandMMA- June 10, 2010 at 2:25 pm
I wonder if Nick Ring is still recovering if he had surgery or if Dana is pissed he didn't fight.
PortlandMMA- June 10, 2010 at 2:23 pm
Yes the makers of such fine films as Monster in the Closet and Surf Nazis must die. I'll give you Class of Nuke Em high and Toxic Avenger though.
Almost North- June 10, 2010 at 2:22 pm
Aww whats up with no Clayton Mckinney? He won an actually entertaining fight and then lost with a busted up shoulder he shouldnt have been fighting with in the first place but Tito apparently thinks only he can be injured and everyone else is faking. War more emo kids fighting in the UFC.

Man fuck Tito, I hope they don't bring his dumb ass back.
justscrappin- June 10, 2010 at 2:03 pm have said so much clever...funny ass shit...I have to disagree with you. Its okay if your not up on every acronym on the make up for it with your rapier wit. I just hope of the of the charges stick ( get it...rapier...rape her...nevermind fml (that's fuck my life if wondering)...)
Viva Hate- June 10, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Please never insult Toxie or the fine people at Troma Films again with such a disrespectful comment.
PortlandMMA- June 10, 2010 at 1:53 pm
Does anyone else think Jardine looks exactly like the Toxic Avenger?
El Famous Burrito- June 10, 2010 at 1:52 pm

Gah, of course! I feel dumb now.
Elentius- June 10, 2010 at 1:50 pm
Oh and Jardine was in "The Gamer" which fits him well. He should also be in Harley commercials.
Elentius- June 10, 2010 at 1:48 pm
I like Jardine and Hamill and always will so that's the only negative I see about this match. I am kinda hoping Jardine pulls this off though. I like the personality of certain fighters not their record. This fight actually interests me more than Liddell and Franklin and it is free so I guess I win.
They should have put Yager up against someone that really dislikes him.
