The Ultimate Fighting Championship yesterday confirmed multiple previously rumored bouts that are scheduled to take place at the organization’s separate April events later this year.
Added to the UFC’s return to Canada on April 18 for UFC 97 were a total of four bouts. Former WEC Brian Stann will make his UFC debut against “Ultimate Fighter” alumnus Krzysztof Soszynski on the event’s televised main card.
Stann was slated to take on Steve Cantwell in the third career bout between the two this past December, but was forced out of the bout with a foot injury. Soszynski comes into the fight with one UFC win already under his belt in the form of a second-round submission of Shane Primm.
The full lineup for the Finale of the Ultimate Fighter 8 reality series has been set. The live telecast will be on SpikeTV from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, December 13 at 9:00pm EST. There are five fights set for the broadcast at this time. In what may be a first in a long time, all 16 participants who competed while living in the TUF house will be on the card.
