The 15th season of The Ultimate Fighter will come to a close on Friday night. As has been the case in past seasons, the winner will be awarded a six-figure contract with the promotion.
That season-ending fight is not the only one to look forward to on the fight card. Also facing off will be two of the welterweight division's top competitors, Martin Kampmann and Jake Ellenberger.
Kampmann and Ellenberger will compete in the evening’s main event. Kampmann (19-5) is riding a two-fight winning streak, defeating Rick Story and Thiago Alves in those bouts. He earned “Submission of the Night” honors for his guillotine choke victory over Alves. In all, Kampmann is 10-4 with the UFC.
Mike Chiesa and Al Iaquinta will face off in the evening's co-main event. The winner of the lightweight scrap will be named the winner of the TUF: Live Lightweight Tournament and will join one of the deepest weight divisions in the UFC upon being awarded a UFC contract.
In all, 10 fights will take place on Friday night’s fight card. Bleacher Report will bring you news from Thursday’s weigh-ins as they happen.
