The Ultimate Fighter: Team St-Pierre vs. Team Koscheck wraps up tonight after a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday. As is the pattern, the 12th season of the highly successful franchise comes to a close just in time for the live finale at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
And just in case anyone has a touch of the post-Turkey Day blues—hard to imagine with more time off right around the corner—the UFC/Spike powers-that-be have cooked up a two-hour antidepressant.

In a perfect world, your pulse would already be racing at the exhilarating prospects of a bout between the emerging favorite, Jonathan Brookins, and Kyle Watson as well as a too-close-to-call-on-paper affair between Michael Johnson and Nam Phan.

Of course, the only way to know for sure is check back in at the top of the hour.
