Mike Ricci battled his way through The Ultimate Fighter house and made it to the finale. He will meet Colton Smith of Team Nelson in the night's co-main event to determine the winner of the season.
With a career record of 7-2, Ricci has already fought stiff competition. He holds a win over hot prospect Jordan Mein and his two career losses are to Bellator champion Pat Curran and former The Ultimate Fighter cast member Daron Cruickshank.

Here are three keys to a Ricci victory.
