The preliminary card kicks off at 6:30 pm ET/3:30 pm PT at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV, headlined by Anthony Pettis vs. Clay Guida and Ramsey Nijem vs. Tony Ferguson in the TUF 13 finale bout.
The Facebook fights that fans will see:
- Jeremy Stephens vs. Danny Downes
- Josh Grispi vs. George Roop
- Ryan McGillivray vs. Shamar Bailey
- Clay Harvison vs. Justin Edwards
- Scott Jorgensen vs. Ken Stone
- Reuben Duran vs. Francisco Rivera
An interesting name on the undercard is Jorgensen, who was last seen in December in a decision loss to Dominic Cruz for the WEC (now UFC) Bantamweight title. Before that loss, Jorgensen had won five straight WEC fights. He will face Stone, who was famously knocked out by Eddie Wineland on that same event with a vicious slam.
McGillivray, Bailey, Harvison and Edwards were all participants on this season of TUF, contributing to 13 total fighters that will be making their UFC debuts Saturday.
