The Ultimate Fighter 17 will come to an end this Saturday night, and the UFC is sending the season off in style with a solid evening of MMA action spread over a three-pronged fight card. 

The event will be headlined by a contest between bantamweight stars Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen, and will also feature the TUF 17 final bout, between Uriah Hall and Kelvin Gastelum. 

Beyond these highly publicized pairings, the card will also feature a very meaningful WMMA match between Miesha Tate and Cat Zigano. The winner of the tussle will coach opposite Ronda Rousey during the next season of TUF, then challenge for the UFC women's bantamweight title.

All told, the TUF 17 finale will play host to 12 fights, which will be shown on Facebook, Fuel TV and FX.
