The UFC has announced that the lightweights have agreed to throw hands at the TUF 20 Finale on December 12th. That event, which will also feature a fight to determine the women’s strawweight champ, will be hosted by the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Cruickshank (16-5) was in action at UFC Fight Night 54 this past weekend, and scored a unanimous decision win over Anthony Njokuani. The highlight reel striker was coming off a decision loss to Jorge Masvidal heading into the bout. Cruickshank is 3-2 in his last 5 fights.
Noons (13-7) will be fighting for the first time since he knocked out Sam Stout in the opening round at a UFC Fight Night card in April. The feared slugger worked his way to a UD win over George Sotiropoulos before that. Noons has gone 2-3 in his last 5 scraps.
The TUF 20 Finale will also see Jeremy Stephens battle featherweight Charles Oliveira and is expected to air on FOX Sports 1.
