Nick Catone vs. TJ Waldburger set for TUF 16 Finale

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

A welterweight fight between Nick Catone and TJ Waldburger is the latest addition to The Ultimate Fighter 16 season finale.

Another fight has been added to the TUF 16 Finale card on December 15th. Nick Catone and TJ Waldburger are both looking to rebound from tough UFC on FX 4 defeats, but only one of them will get it. Catone confirmed the news on his Twitter account.

Catone (9-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) is dropping to 170 lbs for the first time in his career. He had won his last 2 heading into a fight with Chris Camozzi on June 22nd, but after arguably being ahead two rounds he ate a large knee to the forehead in the final stanza, splicing open a massive cut which resulted in a doctor's stoppage.

Waldburger (15-7 MMA, 3-2 UFC) is a grappling specialist who has recorded submission wins in all but 3 of his victories. He couldn't submit the veteran Brian Ebersole in his last fight, which ended his own two-fight winning run. He's only 24 but has plenty of fights under his belt after turning pro at age 17.

The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale is headlined by the coaches fight between Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson, as well as who will become the latest TUF champion.
