The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale is next Sunday and they are still adding fights to it. However, me, you and especially UFC President Dana White cannot agree that this season was the best.
In fact, White would go on to say “without a doubt the worst season” and said it was the “least motivated the fighters have ever been.” Ouch.
The UFC has announced three new fights for that event.
A bantamweight fight between Leandro Issa (11-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) – Jumabieke Tuerxun (14-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC)
lightweights Adriano Martins (25-7 MMA, 1-1 UFC) vs. Juan Manuel Puig (11-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and light heavyweights Robert Drysdale (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Keith Berish (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).
The show goes down live on FOX Sports 1 from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center on July 6th.
Here is the final card:
