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 UFC.com, 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.)
