"The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck" will present their live finale on December 4th. In addition to the finals of the lightweight competition, the night will be full of great UFC action free on Spike!
Two of the more celebrated TUF alumni will compete, as Stephan Bonnar will take on Igor Pokrajac and Kendall Grove will do battle with Demian Maia.
Stephan Bonnar (15-7) is a name forever linked with "The Ultimate Fighter", as he and Forrest Griffin fought one of the most famous battles in the history of MMA. Bonnar is coming off a TKO win at UFC 116, where he stopped Krzysztof Soszynski in their rematch. Bonnar is also the host of "The Ultimate Fighter Aftermath" at UltimateFighter.com.
Igor Pokrajac (22-7) hails from Croatia where he was a training partner for the legendary Mirko Cro Cop. He's hoping to continue his winning ways, having sent James Irvin packing in August. Even with a recent win over Irvin, Pokrajac will need a win over Bonnar to be considered a contender in the cutthroat light heavyweight division.
Kendall Grove (14-7, 1NC) has been a middleweight mainstay since the third season of "The Ultimate Fighter" and is coming off a split decision over Goran Reljic at UFC 116. Expect the Hawaiian to use his striking and rangy physique to his best advantage.
Demian Maia (13-2) is trying to work his way back to another middleweight title shot, having lost a decision to champ Anderson Silva at UFC 112. The Brazilian jiu jitsu back belt has rebounded from the loss with a decision win over Mario Miranda at UFC 118 and is known for his streak of first round submissions, having notched five straight on his entry into UFC.
The finale takes place at The Pearl at the The Palms in Las Vegas and will air live on Spike on December 4.
